and King, bought it in 1913 and developed it with the help of landscape
architect William Pitkin, Jr. He planned out curving streets with an
ample amount of trees that give the old historic district the look of an
English village and most street names are English. Old Arlington was
placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
