Remarks from Frank Washington, Coalition to Save Historic Thoroughfare

As founder of the Coalition to Save Historic Thoroughfare, we all thank you for this honor. It is a privilege as well as a duty to stand firm for the preservation of thoroughfare.

Life can present many challenges. Sometimes those challenges can be complicated. Sometimes those challenges can simply be a matter of what is right and what is wrong. We can never stop believing in the worth of fighting and standing for what is right. And we can never give in to what is wrong. In Thoroughfare, Virginia. We have been striving to give voice and to assure that our ancestors continue to rest securely in our cemeteries.

More Data Centers Proposed in the Rural Crescent

by Chris Carroll

While it’s hard to keep track of the many data center applications throughout Prince William County and the Rural Crescent, it is important to realize that multiple data center proposals are currently under consideration in Nokesville. 

One of these, the 279-acre House Farm Data Center application, proposes to remove several hundred acres from the Rural Crescent; this would allow for industrial sprawl and development into the rural area. No commercial or industrial ventures are nearby, the land is surrounded by residential housing, and the land is outside the Data Center Overlay District. 

View the application submitted in May 2021 here. View the map showing CPAs here.
