Old Town Alexandria

 

Overlooking the Potomac and within minutes of our nation’s capital, Alexandria was established in 1749. Rich in history, it 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, Old Town Alexandria was the third city in the country to create a historic district to preserve its downtown. One of the tour homes was previously owned by Gay Montague Moore, whose dedicated restoration of the Fairfax Moore House started the preservation movement in the City of Alexandria. This walking tour includes private townhomes and secluded gardens located along the tree lined streets of the historic district, boutique shopping, and fine dining, which are all just steps away. In addition, the tour ticket allows access to two Garden Club of Virginia restoration projects, George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens and Green Springs Gardens, and to other local places of interest.
