The 19th Century Russell Farmhouse in Woodbridge Va

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Real Estate Connections

Russell House, Woodbridge VA



Most Prince William County residents who look at the picture on the right would say, "That's Daks Grill on Minnieville Road in front of Cowles Ford" and they would be right.

However, it's also the 19th century flagstone Russell farmhouse.

Unless you took a few minutes to read the historic marker tucked under a low hanging tree alongside the parking lot you would have no idea of the history surrounding the building.

Daks is one of our favorite steakhouse restaurants, but the interior with its' wide plank floors and old walls have much more meaning to us now.

Karen, I am glad that they saved the Farmhouse!  I love it when great old buildings get repurposed and a new lease on life!  Great post, I really do enjoy this series!

Karen, it's a great service to the people that historic buildings come with a marker and some explanation. It's always interesting to me to learn about the history of a place or building.

Karen,

It's great that some buildings were done so well that they survive and function today. :)
