North Old Town Alexandria reflects the history of the US: from its agricultural/port city beginnings, through its focus on industrialization, and then its suburbanization as a bedroom community to D.C. It also reflects the history of the South – the pain and struggle of the Civil War, and the long road of reconciliation from slavery.

It all happened right in North Old Town Alexandria. From George Washington describing the area as a “fine improvable marsh” to Steppenwolf singing “Born to be Wild” at the Red Cross Riverfront Festival in 1992. Come join Alexandria resident Mike Kenny as he leads us on a fun, educational tour of this historic, rapidly-changing area of North Old Town Alexandria.

Location: Corner of Pendleton St and Union St, Alexandria, Va. Bench on the wharf.
