History Tours: March-November

Did you know…that Alexandria was the most important Scottish city of the 1750s…that a 17 year-old apprentice surveyor assisted in laying out the town and that he was already a hero 15 years before the Revolutionary War…or that Alexandria, located 200 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, was once this country's westernmost seaport?

A fascinating, educational and entertaining 60 minute walking tour to many of Old Town's significant landmarks and little known sites. You will learn about the early history of Alexandria , the city where George Washington slept, dined, shopped, paid taxes, voted, danced, trained and drilled troops, influenced politics, and established his reputation as a man of impeccable integrity.
