History of area:


Broad Run Farms is a residential area north of State Route 7 and State Route 28 that was incorporated in 1952. it shares the zip code of 2065 and can call itself alternately Sterling or Potomac Falls. As an area much older than the surrounding recent growth, it has features unique to the region, including large lots, highly wooded old-growth to the north by the Potomac and to the west by Broad Run, it was founded in 1950 when Miskel’s Farm, site of a Civil War battle that propelled Confederate Capt. John Mosby to fame, was purchased and later subdivided by a U.S. Senate layer. The community banded together in 1995 with state and county help to finance and install its own sewer service in part through and added property tax. The lien was paid off several years early and the tax has been retired.

The Civil War Battle Story

The night before the battle, Mosby and his men were encamped at the Miskel (Broad Run Farms) farm. Mosby decided not to post guards at the Pike (RT7?) that night, because he knew that the Union camp was 15 miles away. Since they planned to leave the next morning, he figured his unit would be gone by the time Union troops reached the area. That night, though, an informer reported Mosby’s whereabouts to the Union Army. At daybreak, the First Vermont Cavalry charge into the Miskel barnyard. The Union troops ere so confident that they closed the farm gates behind themselves to prevent Confederate escape. Although the cavalry numbered 150 to Mosby’s 70, the rebels had repeating pistols and carbines, firepower superior to the sabers carried by the Union cavalry. The Yankees found themselves retreating very quickly after starting the battle. Having closed the gates, though, the retreat turned into a rout for the Confederates. Mosby concluded that battle by chasing the cavalry down Leesburg Pike to Dranesville, a distance of five miles, taking 83 prisoners and 95 horses before pulling back. The victory earned Mosby a promotion to Major for this gallantry. An 1895 engraving made by artist James Taylor depicts this battle, and is included in an 1896 book, Mosby’s Rangers, James Williamson.
