Clarendon

Clarendon is located between the Virginia Square and Courthouse metro stations. It is bound by Wilson Boulevard and Clarendon Boulevard. Clarendon represents a considerable evolutionary process, from a quiet colonial forest to a bustling urban center. From the mid 1700s through most of the 1800s, the land of Clarendon was a means to meet agrarian ends. The list of past Clarendon landowners includes some important names from American History, including George Mason.

Like other parts of Arlington, Clarendon played a small but important role in the American Civil War. It was in Clarendon that bands of Union troops settled in to buffer the Federal City from Confederate attack.

Clarendon experienced considerable development at the turn of the 20th century. With the advent of electric rail, communities like Clarendon flourished. In 1937, the main Arlington Post Office was established in Clarendon, unifying Arlington and solidifying Clarendon’s role as a focal point in county affairs.
