Alleys within the City of Alexandria play a significant role in defining the character, the landscape, and social history of the city. Yet, the alleys are an overlooked asset in city planning, development, and historic research. Many alleys have been demolished for development or incorporated into adjacent lots. The intent of this inventory of public and private alleys was to assist the city in addressing these and other issues and to provide the baseline documentation that is needed to effectively manage the historic resources for the future.

Please join us to learn about this community-led survey project and to recognize the volunteers who contributed to this important study.
