The small urban community of Burke, Virginia, was named for Silas Burke (1796?1854), farmer, merchant, and local politician who built a house on a hill overlooking the valley of Pohick Creek in approximately 1824. The house is still standing.
When the Orange and Alexandria Railroad was constructed in the late 1840s, the railroad station at the base of that hill was named Burke’s Station after Burke, who owned the land in the area and donated a right-of-way to the railroad company. Currently, railroad tracks on the same historical line are owned by the Norfolk Southern Railway and form part of the Manassas line of the Virginia Railway Express commuter rail system, of which two stations lie in the Burke area.
One of the largest developments in Burke is Burke Centre, a 1,700 acre planned community, divided into five subcommunities, The Commons, The Landings, The Oaks, The Ponds and The Woods. Other notable communities in the Burke area include Lake Braddock, Signal Hill, Crownleigh, and Cherry Run.
