HHistory Resources for Oakton

Originally called Flint Hill, Oakton was renamed in 1883, inspired by the giant white oak tree on the corner of Hunter Mill Road and Chain Bridge Road. The small agricultural community began to grow  in 1905 with the opening of a trolley stop here, part of the Fairfax Electric Railway’s construction of a trolley line from Vienna to Fairfax Court House. 

Many local residents, historians, and government agencies have endeavored to collect and preserve the history of our community. We will be posting here links to various collections and articles, as well as the occasional photo. (Click on the drop-down menus under Oakton History on menu bar.)  We very much welcome input from the community. Have items of historical interest? Please let us know!
