Occoquan's Public Wharf was here. This wharf and others at the Occoquan River's highest navigable point were key to the 19th- and early 20th-century town's porsperity. Ships were built, barges carried grain to Ellicott's Mill, and flour, logs, fish and ice were shipped downstream. Boats brought traveling shows and weekend Washington tourists.
