Join us on the Alexandria Firefighting Tour to explore the history of valiant firefighting in Alexandria, Virginia.

We will stop by two historic fire stations—without touring their interiors—to gain insights into the development and transformation of colonial firefighting practices in this charming riverside town.

Step into the past as you walk, reliving three catastrophic 19th-century fires that tested the mettle of Alexandria’s pioneering firefighters. Engage with these historical moments, understanding how these volunteers risked everything to safeguard their community, including the Great Fire that left an indelible mark on the city’s history.

By the end of the tour, you’ll gain an appreciation for the courage, dedication, and ingenuity that defined Alexandria’s early firefighting heroes. Take advantage of this opportunity to uncover the history behind the city’s firefighting legacy.
