When someone refers to “Fort Hunt” they likely mean the area north and west of Mount Vernon, George Washington’s home. The Mount Vernon Mansion sits at the southern end of the George Washington Parkway, about 10 miles south of Old Town. Fort Hunt encompasses many neighborhoods including Riverside Gardens, Tauxemont, Herbert Springs, Waynewood, Plymouth Haven, Potomac Valley – River Bend, Collingwood, Stratford Landing, Stratford on the Potomac, Hollin Hall, Wellington, Arcturus, Villamay and Marlan Forest. Most of the houses in the area were built between 1950-1980 but construction during the last decade has provided a variety of new housing choices.
