Famous Locations in Alexandria

  • Carlyle House
    Located directly in front of City Hall in the Old Town district, you will find the Carlyle House. Resembling something from a fairy-tale, this old mansion has a sophisticated quality to it. It was built in 1793 by John Carlyle for his wife Sarah Fairfax.

  • Gadsby’s Tavern Museum
    For lovers of a good “yarn” and a cup of ale, it is well worth your time to stop by to visit Gadsby’s Tavern Museum. Open for business since the late 1700s, Gadsby’s Tavern and City Hotel was the place for local business people to meet and discuss their pressing business affairs. Other activities here included dancing, live theater, and people watching. This facility once hosted such influential figures as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe.
