Once a rural road by which Virginia tobacco entered the port city of Alexandria, Franconia Road is now a bustling six-lane city road catering to millions of pedestrians on a daily basis.
Franconia has witnessed several events throughout history such as the birth of the first Virginia governor from the northern part of the state, a Mosby raid, and even became home to a thriving African-American community called Carrolltown. All these and much more information about the history of Franconia you’ll find at the Franconia Museum.
Located at 6121 Franconia Road, Alexandria, Franconia Museum preserves the history, present, and future of Franconia through pictures, artifacts, and stories. With a host of volunteers fueling its operations and regular exhibits at local libraries and other community places, the museum is one of the uniting factors of its surrounding community, serving to educate the public and enrich their cultural and historical knowledge.
The best way to learn more about the Franconia Museum is to join their many events, including regular meet-ups where guests share their stories and of course, their Franconia History Day celebration in the fall.
