About Woodbridge, VA
Rich in history and teeming with modern-day amenities, Woodbridge is one of the most exceptional places to live in Northern Virginia. Neighbored by Dale City, Lorton and Lake Ridge, this community is nestled on land once inhabited by Doeg Native Americans and, in the 1600s, by the George Mason family. Until the end of World War II, Woodbridge was primarily a farming community; in the post-war era, the farms gave way to residential and commercial development.
