Located on the Potomac River downstream from Washington, DC and Arlington, Alexandria is one of the best preserved cities from the early years of the United States. Established on May 11, 1749 the city was named for the local Alexander family. In 1752, the Fairfax County Courthouse was moved to Alexandria and it quickly became the political and economic center of Northern Virginia. During this time, its bustling ports shipped tobacco, grain, and wheat to England and the Caribbean. Beginning in 1801, Alexandria was part of the District of Columbia until it was retroceded to Virginia in 1847 and was chartered as a city shortly thereafter in 1852. The historic Old Town district is a square mile of beautiful 18th Century homes, shops, and fine restaurants near the river and draws over 1.5 million domestic and international visitors annually. Overlooking Old Town is the 333-foot neoclassical monument dedicated to George Washington, Alexandria’s most famous citizen. Since the early 1990s, the city has seen more than two million square feet of new office highrises and complexes constructed. Additional buildings with Alexandria addresses are located just outside the southern city limits in Huntington, an unincorporated part of Fairfax County.
