2017 Historic Alexandria Homes Tour

Get ready, this year’s tour is coming!  It will take place on Saturday, September 23, from 10:00AM to 3:00PM.

Eight historic homes, all in Old Town, and within walking distance of each other, will be open.  Take a walk and a look!  All proceeds will benefit Inova Alexandria Hospital.

Some highlights:

A 1812 townhouse that was the first free girls’ school in America and later housed a Civil War prison

A yard where a large tree toppled in a storm has been replaced by metal trees that muffle sound and provide privacy

Tour tickets are $40 in advance and $45 on the day of the tour.  Tickets are available for purchase on-line and at the Ramsay House Visitor Center.
