Harley Road Terminus, Mason Neck, VA

This road led to one of George Mason's mills, which was in existence from at least the early 1700s, on Kane's Creek.

The road only came to be called "Harley Road" in the mid-1800s, after the Harley family bought and settled on most of the surrounding property. Older maps only refer to it as "the Mill road."

It is most likely, one of the oldest roads in Fairfax County.
