Welcome to Vienna sign
  • Virginia

    The first European settler in what is now Vienna was Col. Charles Broadwater, who built his home there in 1754. A Scottish immigrant, John Hunter, married Broadwater’s daughter and developed a tobacco plantation there in the late 1760s, which he named Ayr Hill, after his native county in Scotland. By the mid-1850, the small village on the property had grown into a town filled with new inhabitants attracted by land prices and the coming of a railroad line, and changed its name to Vienna. But the area’s most explosive growth came after World War II, when thousands of new residents moved into newly built homes. Today, it remains a popular suburb conveniently close to Washington and the Tysons Corner retail district, as well as the Wolf Trap performing arts center. Meadowlark Gardens Regional Park’s landscaped gardens and waterfowl ponds are another attraction. Vienna has a range of housing, from large, recently built multi-story single-family homes to townhomes and condos.
