The lake is a 135-acre man-made reservoir created by a dam in the early 1900s to provide water to the city of Alexandria. The lake and dam were sold to private developers in the late 1940s, and the namesake upper-middle-class residential community was built in the early 1950s.

The heart of the Lake Barcroft community is, as you might have guessed the privately owned Lake Barcroft itself. Although most of the lakefront property belongs to about 225 individual homeowners, all Lake Barcroft residents — about 1,040 households — have lake privileges and easy access to the water from five sandy beaches.
A wide variety of wildlife lives on or around the lake, including owls, foxes, rabbits, geese, ospreys, great blue herons and more. Throughout the summers, residents gather at the lake for cook-outs, boat races, bonfires and other community events and activities. The Fourth of July means a parade and fireworks.
Some of the original home designs still remain but over the years many homes have been torn down and replaced with more contemporary styles while others have undergone extensive renovation and additions.
