Inscription. In 1804, after Virginia’s General Assembly granted a charter, Occoquan was platted on 31 acres of founder Nathaniel Ellicott’s and others’ land. The Plat laid off streets and lots. Structures shown included the public wharf, Ellicott’s Mill and Bridge, and “Rockledge.” A large part of today’s town plan is identical to the grid shown on the plat.
