Alexandria’s former importance as a port city is reflected in this dolphin door knocker. A walk around Old Town will yield sightings of a variety of maritime accessories on historical homes.

Green Spring Gardens in Alexandria, VA, is a five-acre national historic site which includes a museum and a greenhouse. Among the attractions is the park’s gardening program for children. Potting seeds to take home, watching flower and vegetable gardens grow, learning how to read a sundial, and donning a bathing suit to explore water gardens are just some of the activities designed to catch the interest of would-be horticulturists as young as three years old. This whimsical little adobe house is presumably part of it, though what function it serves isn’t clear. Maybe its function is simply to be fun.
