The Historic Alexandria Waterfront

The Alexandria waterfront has an extensive history. While much has been written about various aspects of maritime history and activities on the waterfront, there is not one easy source from which to acquire information. The materials assembled here include research projects by Alexandria Archaeology staff and volunteers, as well as members of the Alexandria Archaeological Commission, about historic buildings, places and preservation planning tools such as GIS maps. These studies are not intended as the definitive history of the waterfront but are part of an ongoing program to study the complexities of Alexandria’s maritime heritage and to preserve historic resources. Links and references are also provided to additional sources that are particularly helpful in understanding the historic waterfront.
