Quantico Tourism

Quantico (formerly Potomac) is a town in Prince William County, Virginia. As of the 2010 United States Census, Quantico had a population of 480. Quantico is bordered by the U.S. military installation of Marine Corps Base Quantico on three sides and the Potomac River on the fourth. Quantico is located south of the mouth of Quantico Creek on the Potomac. The word Quantico is a derivation of the name of a Doeg village recorded by English colonists as Pamacocack. Quantico is the site of one of the largest U.S. Marine Corps bases in the world, MCB Quantico. The base is the site of the Marine Corps Combat Development Command and HMX-1 (the presidential helicopter squadron), Officer Candidate School and The Basic School. The United States Drug Enforcement Administration's training academy, the FBI Academy, the FBI Laboratory, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations headquarters are on the base. A replica of the USMC War Memorial stands in the entrance to the base (the original is at the north end of Arlington National Cemetery). As of 2013, the mayor is Kevin P. Brown.
