Welcome to Historic Alexandria
Many of the city's premier historic sites fall under the administration of the Office of Historic Alexandria, the department of City government charged with the conservation, interpretation and promotion of these links to the past. These sites bring Alexandria's varied and storied history to life. Additionally, Alexandria has many more historic sites which are open to the public and tell a significant part of the city's historical tale. The Office of Historic Alexandria is accredited by the American Alliance of Museum and is a member of the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience.
