Within the Belle Haven area, you'll find the namesake that started it all: a small older subdivision named Belle Haven. Belle Haven was laid out and development began back in the 1920's. Some of those older, stately homes remain but many have been knocked down to make room of impressive luxury homes.
Belle Haven is located just outside Old Town Alexandria on a hill overlooking the Belle Haven Country Club. Belle Haven itself is the oldest (and to some minds the most exclusive) part of Belle Haven. The neighborhood overlooks the Potomac River and surrounds Fort Willard. Fort Willard was an earth and timber fort built to protect the capital during the Civil War. It's position overlooking the Potomac River Valley was an perfect for artillery. Today, Fort Willard is a small park at the center of Belle Haven.
