Along with most of Prince William County, Bristow has a rich heritage that dates back to the Civil War. The majority of the Bristow area was previously part of the Linton's Ford plantation, owned by the Linton family from the 18th century. In the late 1800s the property was donated to the Roman Catholic Church to establish schools for underprivileged students. In 1922, Linton Hall Military School (now known as Linton Hall School) was founded. In the late 20th century, much of the original property was sold to developers.
