The Alexandria Garden District is a vibrant, diverse community with various styles of homes and people who call it home. The people who choose to live in the Alexandria Garden District value history, architecture, and beauty.
"Residential architecture in the Garden District represents a period of prosperity and growth in Alexandria from 1905 to 1950. The majority of buildings are typical early twentieth century styles, predominately Craftsman and Colonial Revival. Most structures were constructed during the early twentieth century lumber boom, resulting in grand mansions and high-style homes along the main corridor, Jackson Street. More modest architecture of the same form and style contributes to the district as streets move away from Jackson Street."
