Discovering the Decades was created in honor of the City's 250th Birthday in 1999. A number of City staff contributed to this project, including Al Cox, Pamela J. Cressey, Timothy J. Dennee, T. Michael Miller, and Peter Smith. Some of the original articles have been updated based on new research.

Travelers’ Accounts of the Alexandria Waterfront provides additional information and is also organized by decade.
