Farmington Landing is one of the smaller sites at Piscataway, but it’s one of the most popular with locals.
Beginning in the mid-1800s Farmington Landing was one of the main access points for the area around Piscataway Creek. Steamboats ferried passengers between the wharf and the city of Alexandria. By the 20th century the landing had fallen out of commercial use due to the rapid accumulation of silt, but the spot remains a favorite for local fishers and kayakers.
