Taylor Run

The story of Taylor Run is one that spans many generations. Its geography is defined by Shooter’s Hill, which marks the high land west of Old Town. Two turnpikes bind Taylor Run: The Leesburg Turnpike (King Street) and Little River Turnpike (Duke Street). Some of the community’s earliest inhabitants are believed to have been Native Americans. The area was explored and settled by colonists arriving in the late 17th century. In the mid 1700’s, John Carlyle, a prominent merchant from Alexandria, is known to have owned farmland in Taylor Run.

During the Civil War, Fort Ellsworth was constructed near the base of Shooter’s Hill. The fort was dismantled after the war ended. Today the name lends itself to apartment complexes in the southeastern end of the community. It is also important to note that Taylor Run is also home to the George Washington Masonic National Memorial. Remember the Titans? They’re in Taylor Run, too.

Quality of Life:

Taylor Run is the kind of neighborhood people don’t want to leave, except maybe when one has the opportunity to move into The White House. Hint: President Gerald Ford called Taylor Run home. The neighborhoods of Taylor Run offer an eclectic mix of housing options. Residents enjoy living close to Old Town, Alexandria. All the typical amenities are located nearby. The Hoffman Center located on the other side of Duke Street has an AMC movie theater and several restaurants.

Getting Around:

The King Street Metro station is a convenient commuter stop for Taylor Run inhabitants. For those looking for something more, Amtrak and VRE operates a station nearby as well. Easy access to I-495. King and Duke Street are main arteries that will take you to the heart of Old Town or to I-395.

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 10 miles.
Washington-Dulles International Airport:  < 30 miles.
Baltimore-Washington International Airport:  < 45 miles.
