So far, we have looked at 20 homes in Alexandria. We now reach our final phase. Our next source to tap into is the Historic Maps website. There are over 50 homes on their list for Alexandria, way too many to feature here. We selected a dozen, a painful act of whittling down.
We’ll start with Washington Street, once a street of best addresses in the city. A few beauties were torn down (The Shadows/Sea Captain House (617 South), Hallowell-Carlin House (215 North), and Corse-Leadbeater House (414 North), but some remain.
We feature three standouts, two south of King and one north.
