Dale City was founded by real estate developer C.D. Hylton. The name was chosen by Hylton in order to evoke images of the "hills and dales" in the surrounding countryside. The post-war housing boom facilitated the construction of a large number of Dale City VA homes. Many locations in town are named after Hylton to this day, such as Hylton Memorial Chapel and C.D. Hylton High School. Hylton Realty sells most of the Dale City VA real estate. Today, this unincorporated community has a great deal to offer the prospective Dale City home buyer.
