In 1839, local notables with intellectual interests built a Greek Revival library-auditorium for debates, concerts and literary soirées. Today, the building celebrates Alexandria’s unique heritage with changing displays on local history – from the town’s founding and growth as a port, through its role as a Civil War railroad center, to its contemporary place as part of the DC metropolitan area.
