Established in 1798, Buckland was an early inland stagecoach town, situated along the Fauquier and Alexandria Turnpike. An 1855 gazetteer described it as having "1 church and a few shops".[1]

Buckland is the current site of the Buckland Historic District and Battle of Buckland Mills Civil War Battlefield.[2]
