Biking past history

Wiehle Town Hall

In Fairfax County, history can be found along the W&OD trail, the history of The Civil War, A struggling railroad, and a Bourbon distillery can be discovered if you know where to look. 

This old Town Hall was suppose to become the utopia of Wiehle it was abandoned about 1901 and became a part of the Bowman Distillery that would produce Virginia Gentleman bourbon until the company relocated in 1988.

This Caboose is located near a skirmish that occurred in Vienna Virginia during the Civil War.  Confederate Troops attacked a Union Locomotive forcing a hasteful retreat by the engineer and Union Troops.
