Washington Alexandria and Mt. Vernon Lines
The Washington, Alexandria, and Mt. Vernon line was completed in 1894 and was operational until 1932. The route of this line traveled from Washington, D.C. along the Fourteenth Street Bridge, down Route 1 to Alexandria, and out to George Washington's Mount Vernon. This line serviced many neighborhoods, including the African American neighborhoods of East Arlington and Queen City. The line also ran to the Luna Park Amusement Park, which was owned and operated by Washington, Alexandria, and Mt. Vernon executives.
