Thoroughfare Historic Park

Thoroughfare Historic Park is a two-acre parcel of land located along the John Marshall Highway, located within the boundaries of the Thoroughfare Historical District, as recorded by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. The Thoroughfare community was established after the Civil War by freed slaves and mixed-race families, including those of Native American descent, from Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, and Warren Counties. The County’s property includes two of the community’s cemeteries: the Allen-Fletcher Cemetery and Potters Field (also known as Allen Home Place or Payton Cemetery). 

Currently Thoroughfare Historic Park is not publicly accessible. However, future plans for this property are to develop a public interpretive park about the history of the Thoroughfare community.
