Default Building in Alexandria, Va.

Anyone know the history of this building? You can’t see it in this picture but there is a small wood door hidden by the brick column.

Alexandria covers a pretty large area, Jim. What's the address? The cobblestones put it possibly somewhere in old town but again, that's a fairly large area. I live in Alexandria and with the address I can get some information pretty quickly.

Looking for a warehouse or factory building?

Generically it resembles the loading dock at the back of an old school. You can access the county tax records on line which shows a history of ownership -- not sure if it goes back 80 - 100 years.

Alexandria is an independent city, it's not in a county.

Roger on independent city -- like Petersburg or Colonial Heights but more crowded.

OK, check city records. They on line?

Thanks, I just thought it looked odd so took a picture. It was near the waterfront and might have been on s. Union or S. Lee and King St.

Just thought I would ask.

Thanks,

Jim

We prefer to think of it as having more good restaurants Yep. The records are online but an address is necessary to find out info. This was definitely in old town.

One of the worlds (okay, the US's) largest arms merchant has a warehouse on the waterfront around that area. Was it near a small waterfront park? Now I'm going to have to take a drive down there tomorrow (we were just iat the waterfront end of King Street for dinner tonight) just to see if I can figure out where/what it is/was.
