More About Vienna, VA

Vienna’s long history predates its name and its official founding. Clues can be found in its famous national park. Colonial era farmers in the area were plagued by wolves that preyed on their livestock, leading to rewards from the Commonwealth’s General Assembly for those who trapped the predators. The area became known as Wolf Trap Run, and one of the largest properties was named Wolf Trap Farm.

The farm was purchased in 1930 by philanthropist Catherine Filene Shouse. The longtime lover of arts and culture donated approximately 100 acres of the farm to the federal government in 1966 for the purpose of creating the nation’s only national park intended solely for the performing arts. Today, the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts is a premiere visitor destination, offering jazz, country, opera, and other public performances. Local businesses in Vienna, including restaurants, stores, and hotels, benefit substantially from the presence of the park.

History aside, Vienna is much more than a sleepy town dependent on the tourist trade. It’s one of the most affluent communities in the region, a fact reflected in the pricey and palatial homes that dot the lush countryside. Residents enjoy their creature comforts here; you’ll find backyard swimming pools, tennis courts, pristine landscaping, and other accouterments of privilege. Architectural styles run the gamut, with Georgian Revival, French Country, Mediterranean, Arts and Crafts, Modern, and other eye-catching designs. The town is also easily accessible, either by roadways like the Capital Beltway, Route 66, Route 7, Route 123, and public transit via the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU Metro with Orange Line service. 

Located just about 17 miles from Washington, DC’s corridors of power, Vienna is highly popular with those who commute to work, as well as those just as happy to spend their days in a place that is regularly ranked among the very best small towns in America. The Fairfax County town was settled way back in 1754 and incorporated in 1890, and you’ll still find vintage properties including classic farmhouses. But more often than not, available listings reflect the modern age, with numerous large custom homes that are either new construction or substantial expansions.
