History of Arlington Heights
As part of Arlington County, this neighborhood was part of the 1791 ten-square-mile federal district proposed by President George Washington. In fact, you’ll find Arlington Heights on early nineteenth-century maps. Then, it was a farm and part of the Custis family estate, which stretched west from present-day Arlington Cemetery and encompassed parts of current Barcroft.
The estate was confiscated during the Civil War, but the Custis family was eventually paid for the land in 1883. The farm area known as Arlington Heights was ultimately subdivided and platted under various names, including Penrose. Of all the neighborhoods in the Custis estate area today, only Arlington Heights has retained its nineteenth-century name.
