Audio Book Summary
Step back in time and let BrightPath Tours lead you on this audio walking tour of Old Town Alexandria, VA. Established in the mid-1700s, Old Town Alexandria is an early American town steeped in the history of America's first settlers, military leaders, politicians, and churchmen. See the places where these early Americans lived, worked, and socialized and hear many of their stories -- the very stories that you'd expect from a place that produced our first President! Within this historic framework, visitors will also find modern conveniences that will make for a most enjoyable experience! On this walk through Old Town we'll talk about some of the earliest businesses and taverns that supported the 1700s town. We'll see homes associated with the town's founders, including the great Lee family and of course, we'll stop at places that can truly boast that George Washington slept here! Along the way you'll learn about some of the circumstances that made this town one of the busiest, most prosperous seaports of the early days of America's history.
