Preservation Month Walking Tour of Rosemont and Reception | News Release | City of Alexandria

Preservation Month Walking Tour of Rosemont and Reception 


Join neighborhood historians and City preservation planners for a 90-minute walking tour on Saturday, May 20, through the neighborhood known as Rosemont, an early 20th-century trolley suburb.  The houses in Rosemont represent an intact collection of Craftsman, Colonial Revival and Foursquare architectural styles.  We will also consider examples of appropriate alterations and additions.  After the tour, we will convene in the garden of one of the tour guides for a reception.

May is Preservation Month, a time when communities across the country celebrate historic preservation locally.  The City is hosting a series of events to highlight Alexandria’s historic preservation initiatives whether you want to listen to a talk, go for a walking tour or have a drink with other preservationists.  To find out about other events or reserve tickets, please visit https://www.alexandriava.gov/historic/default.aspx?id=90899.
