The History of Dominion Hills
The Dominion Hills neighborhood was first developed in 1945. Prior to that, its history consisted of orchards, grazing, farming, and related activities. In fact, most of the eastern part of Dominion Hills was used for cattle grazing by Reeves dairy farm, while the rest was primarily orchards. The first two developments in Dominion Hills were constructed by Mace Properties between 1945 and 1955. By 1951 there were 420 residences in the neighborhood, and since then, the number has climbed to 612 Dominion Hills homes.
The oldest home in the neighborhood is the Febrey Lothrop house, which is located at the corner of McKinley and Wilson. It sits on nine-and-a-half acres and is one of the most extensive undeveloped tracts remaining in Arlington. If the property were built out, it is estimated it could hold as many as 118 townhouses or 68 single-family homes.
Transformative Events in Dominion Hills
The completion of Interstate 66 in 1982 and the opening of the Metro in 1986 were the two events with the most significant impact on the Dominion Hills neighborhood. Both of these happenings dramatically improved the value of the area, making it more convenient and, therefore, more desirable, which raised property values. The only downside to these changes was the increase in traffic and speeding. McKinley, which turns into Ohio, and Patrick Henry are both areas where drivers are tempted to exceed speed limits, and the southbound hills add to the temptation. Wilson Boulevard also has a moderate amount of traffic, so the neighborhood is continually striving to improve these areas to ensure pedestrian safety.
