Davis Family FarmsteadIn this vicinity stood the home of Thomas K. Davis and his family. Davis purchased 136 acres in 1858 and by 1861 had built a substantial home, barn and outbuildings here. Davis also operated a store in the village of Bristoe Station at the northwest corner of the railroad crossing. Before the war, he had served as Prince William County sheriff and was a well respected member of the community. The war changed that. Davis supported the Union, while most of his neighbors were strong secessionists.
