Alexandria has a rich and intriguing history that dates to the first Native American settlers.
The land was recorded in 1608 by an Englishman, John Smith, who was exploring the Chesapeake Bay. While Smith encountered several groups of the indigenous people living there, it was home to thousands more. They lived along the banks of the Potomac River, enjoying the fruits of the land and the fish and game. Native Americans occupied the land until around 1675.
In 1669 John Alexander bought the land for 6,000 pounds of tobacco. That's a lot of tobacco!
The town was incorporated in 1749, which was the beginning of the long history of Alexandria, Virginia.
Alexandria was known for being the most extensive tobacco trading post and one of the busiest ports in America and was home to the largest slave-trading firm before the Civil War.
An interesting fact about Alexandria is it is older than the United States!
The rich history includes that it was once hometown to George Washington and Robert E. Lee, who are subject to much influence and many stories. In fact, you can't talk about the history of Alexandria without at least one or two tales of each or even both of these men popping up!
Alexandria's most fascinating historical part is the centuries-old, restored buildings that line the quaint cobblestone streets. Experience the awe of Old Town Alexandria and book your tour today!
