A village-like community with deep agrarian roots, Burke takes its name from Silas Burke, a 19th century farmer, merchant and politician. Like many Virginian entrepreneurs, Burke found the area reputable for two reasons:
1) There was an abundance of fertile land.
2) He could build a house on top of a hill.
The house that Burke built still stands today and is open to the public. The property overlooks Pohick Creek, which also bears some historical significance. The moniker “Pohick” refers to the Pohick Native Americans who occupied the area during pre-colonial and colonial times.
Burke has maintained its bucolic appeal despite an increase in suburban development. This is due in large part to Burke’s location outside the Capital Beltway. Residents from around the area enjoy visiting Burke Lake Park, which is ideal for a weekend camping excursion or a leisurely walk during Virginia’s hot summer months. For those looking to improve their swing, Burke Lake Golf Course is conveniently located nearby.
The two-lane road is king in this part of Northern Virginia. Route 495 is 10 minutes away. The Virginia Railway Express (VRE) commuter rail system has a stop at Burke Centre. This provides a manageable solution for those traveling to Alexandria, Arlington and The District on a daily basis.
