For those heading south, there are stations in Woodbridge, Quantico and Fredericksburg. 

There is a nice mixture of single family homes, townhome and condos available in this community, with several styles and floor plans to choose from. These homes were constructed during the early to mid 2000s. Depending on your location within Lorton Station, children will either attend Lorton Station or Laurel Hill Elementary Schools.
