The charming community of Haymarket covers only a single square mile but manages to create a charming hometown atmosphere. The recently opened Haymarket Museum showcases the rich heritage of the town, which was founded in 1798 and boasts a women's club that has been active for more than 50 years. Aligned closely with Gainesville, this small but attractive town offers a number of lovely residential subdivisions like Longhill Street Commons and Greenhill Crossing. Wonderful historic churches, vintage homes, and landmarks like the Red House Inn or the Old Post Office are all surrounded by mature greenery and shaded by leafy, ancient trees. Shopping in Historic Old Towne, nearby Prince William Forest, a local country club, a golf course, and local parks are among the list of attractions.
