Land was first patented here in 1657. In 1731 a warehouse was built on Hunting Creek, about which grew up the village
of Belhaven. The town of Alexandria was established in 1749 and became one of the main colonial trading centers.
It was part of the original District of Columbia but was returned to Virginia in 1847.
