Archaeology Along the Waterfront Celebrate Virginia Archaeology Month with Robinson Landing and Alexandria Archaeology! The current site of Robinson Landing included one of the two original deep-water landings in Alexandria, and was later added to during the late 18th and early 19th century banking-out process that created new land along the waterfront. Test your 18th-century engineering skills and figure out a way to make new land without having it wash away into the Potomac, take part in a block-wide Scavenger Hunt, and join City archaeologists on timed walking tours of Robinson Landing.
Saturday, October 15 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Guided Tour Times: 12:30 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. (30 min each)
Weather permitting. The event is free and open to the public, but tours are limited. Click here for more information and to reserve your guided tour time.
We hope you enjoy these events along the beautiful Old Town waterfront. To learn more about Robinson Landing and our final condominiums, click here.
People who are exploring a new place to live often focus on tangible, measurable considerations: The size of their desired home and the cost of their rent or mortgage; the school choices for their children; or the availability of particular amenities like Metro access. That makes sense, of course, since these factors are often non-negotiable items that affect our bottom line. A far less tangible factor that’s just as important for wellbeing and happiness is the community we become part of: The people we see every day or even a few times a month, the shops and restaurants we regularly frequent, and the essential workers who keep our neighborhoods safe and running smoothly.
On Sunday, we were delighted to host a grand opening event for the brand new community playground at Michigan Park. Community members gathered to meet both long-time residents and new neighbors while children enjoyed the new playground equipment. Local dignitaries, including DC Deputy Mayor John Falcicchio and ANC representatives Colleen Costello and Emily Lucio, officially opened the new playground with a warm welcome and ribbon cutting.
