John Mullen is an archaeologist for D.C.-based environmental and cultural resources consultant Wetland Studies and Solutions Inc.

During the course of a previous development project, he was hired to write the initial documentary study required by the city’s archaeological protection code.

The project was put on hold and eventually fizzled out, but Mullen still wonders what might be found at the RTN site.

Here are some of the things we do know: The RTN location, which is sometimes referred to as West’s Point, was named for the family that owned a tobacco warehouse there before the town of Alexandria existed.

At different points in time there would have been a wharf at that location — a place for ships to load and unload goods — but there is some mystery about when the first wharf would have been built.
