City of Alexandria Est. 1749George Washington considered Alexandria his hometown after its founding in 1749, and it is here that he came to do business, learn the events of the world, pick up mail, and visit friends. His first association with the town was probably as a 17 year-old assistant to the county surveyor in laying out the original plan for the town. His older brother, Lawrence, purchased one of the first lots in 1749.
