Cameron Station Gazebo in Alexandria, Virginia
Ben Brenman Park in Cameron Station

Formerly a military base in the West End of Alexandria, Virginia, Cameron Station has since become a remarkable and transformed residential neighborhood ever since the base closed in 1995. The community is vibrant and designed to reflect the architecture of the 19th century.

Surrounded by Greenery

Cameron Station is an up-and-coming community bounded by the Ben Brenman Park to the east, Backlick Run to the south, Armistead Boothe Park to the west, and the Trade Center Shopping Center to the north. Landmark is to the immediate west and beyond that is I-395 and Bren Mar Park. To the north of the neighborhood is Brookville-Seminary Valley, while some other notable destinations within reach includes Old Town Alexandria, Landmark Shopping Mall, I-495, and the Van Dorn Metro station. 

History on Cameron Station

In 1941, the War Department announced plans to build an Army quartermaster depot along the Southern Railway tracks near Cameron Run. The depot opened in 1942 as part of the Military District of Washington, providing supply, administrative and vehicle maintenance support, and staffed by military personnel and civilians.  Cameron Station’s mission ended in 1995. The first phase of homes being built in Cameron Station began in 1999 on the 164-acre site. Since then, five phases of approximately 2,000 homes were built to form the current Cameron Station community, and thus retaining a family-oriented environment established in the 1940s.

This route’s meeting with South Van Dorn Street encompasses Landmark Mall, a large shopping complex near Cameron Station. Other important roads include South Pickett Street and Edsall Road.

Mostly Townhouses

The architectural designs of the detached homes are notable for their interior touches ranging from hardwood floors, spacious floor plans, environmental friendly elements, high-end kitchens, and plenty of windows illuminating natural light.
