History


Our town is rich in history; beginning in 1654 it was originally called Potomac for the river that flows along the town’s edge.   It was changed to Quantico, an Indian word meaning, “by the large stream” in 1872.  Incorporated in 1927 and chartered in 1934. The town is completely surrounded by the U.S. Marine Corps Base except for the Potomac River to the East.  According to the 2010 Census, the population of Quantico was 480.  We have a mixed population.  Retired and active duty Marines live in town among civilians.   Our town consists of 11 streets. We have a lot of visitors who tell us about the nostalgia of this small town America in the heart of urbanization.  For the retired Marines and their families who visit here each year for their reunion, it’s like coming home, bringing back old memories.
