Old Town Alexandria

Overlooking the Potomac  River with views of our nation’s capital, Old Town Alexandria radiates charm while safeguarding its rich historic roots. Established in 1749, Alexandria was a major seaport prior to the Revolutionary War, occupied by Union troops during the Civil War, and a torpedo production site during World War II. In 1946 Alexandria was the third city in the country to establish a historic district to preserve its architectural heritage. This easy walking tour takes visitors along the tree-lined streets of the Historic District, and includes special programs for ticket-holders.
