Location
Old Presbyterian Meeting House


This Saturday, September 24, 2022, the doors of the Meeting House will be open for tours from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in conjunction with the 80th “Historic Alexandria Homes Tour,” host by The Twig, The Junior Auxiliary of Inova Alexandria Hospital.

This year’s tour includes seven homes in Old Town, four of which are located near the Meeting House. The tour always includes interesting homes and gardens. This year, visitors can stop in the Meeting House to learn something about our historic congregation and structures as well.

Proceeds from the tour support Inova Alexandria Hospital, which is celebrating 150 years of serving the health and wellness of our community.   The Twig also run a Thrift Shop located at 106 North Columbus Street.  In June 2022, The Twig donated $125,000 to the hospital which will be used to support a new simulations skills lab for continuous training for nurses and other hospital staff, as well as the Inova patients’ assistance fund for community members who need care but cannot afford it.  In addition, The Twig provided $5,000 scholarships to two nursing students.  Through their fundraising efforts, The Twig has contributed over $4.5 million to the hospital over the past 89+ years. Several members of our congregation are members of The Twig.

Tickets can be purchased for $40 in advance at https://www.thetwig.org/event/80th-historic-alexandria-homes-tour/or for $45 on the day of the event at OPMH (Elliot House garden on the corner of Fairfax and Wolfe streets), Boxwood or The Twig Shop.
