The community earned a spot on the map when it gained its first post office, known as Laurel Hill, in 1875. The arrival of the railroad and the establishment of a telegraph office and general store meant additional growth for the community, which changed its name to Lorton in the 1880s.
Today Lorton lies just 20 miles from Washington, D.C. and maintains strong ties to its past, thanks to the local Workhouse Prison Museum. With the community’s setting in Fairfax County, Lorton residents enjoy top-notch schools, excellent county services, and a location that can't be beat.
