The History of Haymarket
Haymarket owes its location to the Iroquois as the center of the town was their hunting path. It was used until 1722, when a treaty forced the Iroquois into the Blue Ridge Mountain region. The town of Haymarket wasn’t formally founded until 1799 on the land of William Skinker who drew the layout of the town. Shortly after, a clerk’s office and jail were constructed sometime in 1801, as the town had been selected to be the home for a now District Court. However, the Virginia General Assembly abolished the District Court in favor of the Circuit Court system. Today St. Paul’s Church stands in its location. Along with the church, Evergreen, Locust Bottom, Mt. Atlas, and Old Town Hall and School are also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

When looking for homes in Haymarket, most buyers are surprised to learn that there's a charming old town in among the newer homes and shops! The town of Haymarket was established in 1799 and most of the buildings from that original time period were destroyed by Federal Troops in 1862 when the town was set on fire. You can, however, visit one of the four structures that survived - St. Paul's Episcopal Church. The church was used as a Confederate hospital after the battles in Manassas and many soldiers are buried in its churchyard.
