Warwick Village Early Days
In 1894, development of several 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.
Warwick Village was developed in the mid-1950s, the community features 600+ homes. The community draws its name from the Warwick Estate, owned by DC businessman and philanthropist Frank Hume. Once the estate sold in the 1950s, it was developed into a rental community, converting to townhomes for sale in the 1970s. 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.
