Mount Vernon Ave, named after tentative routes to George Washington’s Estate, was laid out wider than all other streets and featured the largest houses. Now it is perfect for strolling and is Del Ray’s primary destination for food and shopping. There are too many good restaurants to choose from, but to name a few: Cheesetique, Evening Star Cafe, Bombay Curry Co., Dairy Godmother, and St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub. Of course, if you prefer to cook, Del Ray Farmers’ Market pops up every Saturday morning at the corner of Mount Vernon Ave and Oxford Ave, all year round. Additionally, on the first Thursday of May, June, July, August, and September, Del Ray hosts a free street fair featuring local eateries, artisans and musicians. The community is also referred to by some as “Well Ray,” for it’s expansive community of wellness-related business and for the residents that renew the demand for them.
Del Ray Property Values
A relatively young and originally working-class neighborhood, Del Ray is home to an incredibly unique mix of homes. The neighborhood is comprised primarily of single-family dwellings and has seen the construction of folk-Vicotrian houses, foursquares, bungalows, colonial and Tudor revivals and even some pre-cut homes from Sears & Roebuck Co. The pre-existing eclectic blend has lent itself well to the addition of duplexes, apartments, and condos. The strong and well-maintained sense of community certainly play a part in giving the mixture a sense of unity.
Del Ray Early Days
In 1894, development of Del Ray, along with several other neighborhoods began. They were originally conceived as planned communities outside the city limits of both Alexandria and Washington, DC. The communities became very popular among US Government employees. In 1906, Potomac Yards opened, causing a population boom, and by 1908, Del Ray, along with St. Elmo, Abingdon, Hume, and parts of Mt. Vernon were combined to form the incorporated town of Potomac, complete with its own mayor, council, police force and fire brigade. In 1930, once Potomac’s value had become fully evident, it was annexed by the city of Alexandria. At that time Potomac ceased to exist, but it now lives on as Town of Potomac Historic District.
Del Ray, “Where Main Street Still Exists,” is also known for being home to the first interurban streetcar in The United States. From the time of its inception and original planning, Del Ray was a haven for commuters, looking for affordable living arrangements with easy access to Alexandria and DC. With metropolitan areas to the north and south, the grid for what would become the town of Potomac was laid out in long blocks running east to west for easy access to the electric railway and the turnpike. Developers were so passionate about commuting that they offered a year’s worth of free commuter fare to anyone who built a house before November, 1894.
