Halfway is a small, unincorporated hamlet in Fauquier County, Virginia,[1] running along State Route 626, known as Halfway Road. The hamlet is named so for its equidistant location between the towns of Middleburg and The Plains. It is home to a local vineyard and winery, and carries The Plains' ZIP Code of 20198.[citation needed]

Wide usage of Halfway is now quite uncommon, except by residents within neighboring towns. The area is usually considered to be part of The Plains, although a small sign still stands noting that the area is known as Halfway. The post office and general store no longer exist there.[citation needed]
