The History of Arlington View
This well-established community has a rich history stretching back more than 250 years. This vibrant heritage contributes to the neighborhood’s strong sense of community.
Originally, present-day Arlington View was known as Johnson’s Hill. In the early 1700s, the area was a farm divided into four sections, three of which were sold in the late 1800s to former slaves.
The northwest corner of Johnson’s Hill was sold to the Gray family, and their descendants still reside in the community to this day. The Gray family built Arlington’s first brick townhome here, and it remains today. A lovely middle-class, predominately black neighborhood grew around Gray’s townhome.
By the 1950s, Arlington View had declined, so a group of motivated residents formed a neighborhood group to clean up and restore the area. Though the neighborhood has no historical markers, there are many sites that display its rich heritage. The Mount Olive Baptist Church is an excellent example, having moved to Arlington View in 1932 and continuing to operate today with services every Sunday.
Another historical point of interest in the community is the Hoffman-Boston School building, which was established in 1916 and today is home to a Head Start program for children, continuing education for adults, and other educational programs.
