The historic Freeman House is located on Church Street in Vienna. It is really the unofficial center of town and its active lifestyle, as on one side is the Vienna Town Green, a weekend farmers market, the W&OD Bike Trail (you can walk or run too), an organic bakery, Bazin’s on Church Restaurant, Clarity, great pizza at Church Street Pizza, Bikes@Vienna, Caffe Amouri, Cocoa Vienna, Caboose Brewery and much more.
Charming brick sidewalks and a really nice spot for a dozen events through-out the year.
The Town of Vienna, Virginia is where I have lived for the past 20-something years (time flies). One of this blog’s categories is Living Here, and when I stumble across something interesting that may be off the typical radar, I will write a blog post.
The Town of Vienna has an elected Mayor and Town Council. There is a Public Works Department, Police Department, Volunteer Fire Department maned by professional Fairfax County Firefighters, a town hall, town green, annual Halloween Parade, 4th of July fireworks show and much more.
Although the Town is within Fairfax County, residents of the Town pay an additional property tax currently set (2022) at $0.25 per $100 of assessment on top of the Fairfax County VA property tax. This additional tax provides for a wide array of services including trash and recycling for residents
The Town of Vienna covers 4.4 square miles, and has a population of approximately 15,500.
