Fauquier County is a unique and thriving locality, strategically located 40 miles southwest of Washington D.C. (and part of the Washington D.C. Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area). Access to robust local and regional economies among a beautiful and mostly rural Virginia Piedmont setting makes Fauquier County a highly attractive location to live and work. The County is home to 43 villages and three incorporated towns. The majority of county development is located within 8 designated Service Districts: Bealeton, Catlett, Marshall, Midland, New Baltimore, Opal, Remington and Warrenton. These Service Districts comprise less than 10% of county land, leaving the majority of county lands rural.
