Historic Alexandria Foundation (HAF) works to protect historic structures and artifacts associated with Alexandria, Virginia. Through advocacy, grants, awards, and recognition programs we encourage public participation and appreciation of our cultural heritage. Since its founding in 1954, HAF has raised many millions of dollars for surveys of historic architecture, protection of endangered buildings, restoration of museum properties, and conservation of important historical artifacts. Please join us in safeguarding – and celebrating – Alexandria’s rich cultural and architectural history.
