Welcome to Varina

The Town of Varina was located on the lands of Jacob Hauser in July 1899. This pretty and romantic name was adopted one month after by the railway company at the suggestion of Robert E Flickinger. The name Varina was the name given to the Virgina home of John Rolfe and Pocahontas. The town was opened to the public in October 1899, with the sale of twenty-six lots. August Porath purchased the first business lot, 25′ by 142′, for $92.50.
