Cameron, Virginia

Cameron was the name of the settlement or neighborhood which began at the junction of several major roads leading into Alexandria, between one and two miles west of town, and thence extending several miles west along Cameron Run, the stream which fed into Hunting Creek. In GW’s lifetime Cameron lent its name to a proposed town, several family homes, a mill, and an ordinary.

GW went to Cameron on several occasions, and attended horse races there (see Diaries, 2:83-84; see also Ledger A, 277, 291).
