Old Town Alexandria


Overlooking the Potomac 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 includes private homes and secluded gardens nestled along the tree-lined streets of the Historic District.
