Northridge

North Ridge is a community with a varied past. Over the course of its development, it has been incorporated to no fewer than eight different counties. North Ridge has proudly been a part of the City of Alexandria since 1929. North Ridge is bound on the west by Quaker Lane, Glebe Road to the north, Russell Road to the east and both King Street and Braddock Road to the south. The name “North Ridge” refers to the high ground on which it is situated.

Traces of human activity in North Ridge date back 12,000 years, when Native Americans inhabited the area. Europeans settled parts of North Ridge during the late colonial period.  In 1749, part of the community was integrated into the original city plan of Alexandria.

Through most of the first half of the 20th century, the community of North Ridge balanced agrarian ideals with urban pursuits. Like other communities in the city of Alexandria, North Ridge’s development was pushed forward with the building of the Washington-Mt. Vernon electric rail line.

Quality of Life:

In light of suburban growth, the community of North Ridge has worked hard to hold on to its rural past. Living in North Ridge still gives one a taste of small town flavor. North Ridge’s residents are energetic and concerned with civic affairs. An eclectic mix of housing is available in the community, from old farmhouses and cottages to modern colonials. North Ridge residents are only a short bike ride or drive away from the shops and eateries of Del Ray. Four Mile Run Park is easily accessible for those looking for an active lifestyle.

Getting Around:

Intercity travel is easy with DASH Bus stops on Cameron Mills Road and Russell Road. Braddock Road Metro and King Street Metro stations are conveniently located as well. For those driving, Braddock Road and King Street will bring you to I-395; Route 1 is also close, as is the George Washington Parkway.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 5 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 30 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 45 miles.
