Hi all,


In the 1960s, we lived on the 3000 block of "North Birchdale Drive" and the address was technically Woodbridge, although I always thought of it as Dale City (I was 4 or 5 at the time). I recently tried to look it up on Google Maps, but there is nothing by that house number. It looks like what was North Birchdale Drive is simply "Birchdale Drive" now, and all of the house numbers are assigned 6 digits. Is that correct?


I'm hoping there is someone out there old enough to remember Dale City in the late 1960s. Thanks!

I worked for PWCPD from 79-2009 and it was always just Birchdale Dr while I was there. Not sure when the North part was taken away.

Some googling found this document dated 1979. It references 3202 North Birchdale Square: https://books.google.com/books?id=Qb...6AEwBXoECAoQAQ

There is still a Birchdale Square, but it seems the North has been dropped as well.

Looking at that document, it seems to list the position, who its filled with and their home address?
