Alexandria City Virginia Information and Highlights

Alexandria also called The City of Alexandria is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Like the rest of Northern Virginia, as well as central Maryland, modern Alexandria has been shaped by its proximity to the U.S. capital. It is largely populated by professionals working in the federal civil service, in the U.S. military, or for one of the many private companies which contract to provide services to the federal government. One of Alexandria's largest employers is the U.S. Department of Defense. Another is the Institute for Defense Analyses. In 2005, the United States Patent and Trademark Office moved to Alexandria.

History

The first European settlement was established in 1695 in what was then the English Colony of Virginia. Almost immediately upon establishment, the town founders called the new town "Belhaven," believed to be in honor of a Scottish patriot, John Hamilton, second Lord Belhaven and Stenton, the Northern Neck tobacco trade being then dominated by Scots. The town of Alexandria did not become incorporated until 1779. In 1930, Alexandria annexed the Town of Potomac. That town, adjacent to Potomac Yard, had been laid out beginning in the late 19th century and incorporated in 1908.

By the end of the 20th century, Alexandria had become an essential portion of the urban agglomeration of Northern Virginia.
