Richmond Highway, also known as Historic Route 1, is the main street of southeast Fairfax County. What once served as an early trade route for farmers and George Washington’s road to the Nation’s Capital, is now a major north-south thoroughfare.

Today, the 7.5 mile stretch of Richmond Highway from the Capital Beltway to Fort Belvoir is changing. A diverse population of residents, new businesses and cultural attractions surround Richmond Highway in more ways than ever before.

Richmond Highway is becoming an increasingly popular place to live and invest due to

  • Easy access to Washington, D.C.
  • Metro access
  • Public Transportation
  • Major employment centers
  • Wide variety of restaurants
  • Popular retail venues
