Mayors Welcome

Welcome to the Town of Dumfries Website.  We are proud to be the oldest continuously chartered Town in Virginia and Home of President George Washington’s Cherry Tree story written by Mason Locke Weems, usually referred to as Parson Weems.

This website is for our citizens, business owners, visitors, and future residents to use often as a resource to get a wide range of information about our town. 

On this site you should be able to find out where we are located, why the town was chartered, what you must do to open your business in town, who are the elected officials in town who create policy and the staff whom administers the policy, and how you can stay connected with us via e-mail, phone, or social media.  And there is so much more.  Just click on the tabs and if there is information that you are looking for on this website that you cannot find, feel comfortable contacting us and we will work to make public information available to you. 

Derrick R. Wood
Mayor, Town of Dumfries
