About Old Town Alexandria Covering much of the southeast and east sides of Alexandria in Virginia of the United States, Old Town is the historic center. The town was planned and built in the mid-1700s. Cobblestone streets and original buildings like homes and churches tell stories of colonial life in the 18th century. Visitors to the area today can absorb some of the history as well as do some shopping in the shops, visiting museums, and other cultural attractions.
Old Town History The heart of the town was a trading place for tobacco, and it had one of the busiest ports in the greater Washington DC area. As a significant port, it was a hub for slave trading. Then later, it became the home of many freed slaves. Meanwhile, many historically famous figures lived in Alexandria including George Washington and Robert E. Lee.
