Bob Madison, author of Walking with Washington: Walking Tours of Alexandria, Virginia, led a walking tour through Old Town Alexandria and visits three locations important during George Washington’s time. The Carlyle House was home to John Carlyle and his wife, Sarah Fairfax. Carlyle was a founder of Alexandria and one of the earliest landowners. Gadsby’s Tavern was a place where Washington dined frequently and also attended Birthnight Balls in his honor. At 235 years old, Christ Church is one of the oldest churches in the city. George Washington attended services there and his family pew is still marked.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Alexandria, Virginia, February 15-22 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
