"I love living in the Seminary Hill neighborhood because it combines the convenience of city living with wonderful large areas of green open space that, despite being privately owned, are accessible to the public. This is an increasingly rare luxury in the City of Alexandria today.”
“Seminary Hill is a vibrant area in the center of Alexandria that is home to a diverse population of engaged residents, and we enjoy the proximity of schools, churches, and recreational opportunities.”

These buildings and grounds were landmarks in Alexandria’s history in the 19th century. I always enjoy showing my visitors these sites and explaining the important role that my neighborhood played in Alexandria’s past."
