The Plains

Homes & Businesses in The Plains, Virginia

Quaint, simple, natural, casual and unpretentious, The Plains is a community where residents relish mixing tales of the town’s Civil War past with its present-day life.  It’s nestled in one square mile in Fauquier County about 50 miles west of Washington, a community marked by rolling hills, fields, farms and low mountains.

“There are no definite roads or names for town borders,” said Marcia Markey, town historian. “On the east, the dividing line between county and town cuts through the Cecil Moffett house — an old family now deceased — while on the west it runs through the field beyond the Stuart Farm home.”

The Plains, incorporated in 1910, is a town of 217 people, said Mayor Robert Gurtler, who is in his fourth term and 27th year of public service.
