The Historic Alexandria Foundation was incorporated in 1954 "to preserve, protect and restore structures of historic and architectural interest in and associated with the City of Alexandria, Virginia, to preserve antiquities and generally to foster and promote interest in Alexandria's heritage." The Foundation carried out the city's first survey of early buildings, later published as Historic Alexandria, Street by Street: A Survey of Existing Early Buildings. This scholarly book was edited by the late Ethelyn Cox, who supplemented the architectural field work with deed research on the chain of ownership of the properties presented. Parts of the survey were also published in conjunction with the Department of Planning of the City of Alexandria as an Historic Chart, Alexandria, Virginia http://www.historicalexandriafoundation.org/home.aspx Like this
