One of the great things about my first two years in the Virginia House of Delegates has been the town of Occoquan...and especially its great people, families, and businesses! I have enjoyed attending town events and Town Council meetings, knowing and making new friends, and shopping in the town's wide variety of stores and shops. Occoquan is definitely the BIGGEST small town in America--this honor is no surprise and is well deserving! Del. Rich Anderson 51st House District Virginia General Assembly

It is wonderful to see Occoquan recognized for being the unique and quirky place it is. Small towns like Occoquan offer us more than simply shopping and treats. Small towns remind us that friends and neighbors are sill important, and that in a world increasingly defined by chain stores and restaurant, and a crushing homogeneity and conformity, uniqueness is still desirable. Occoquan is like a cool breeze: gentle, refreshing, and always welcome. If that's not cool, I do not know what is.
