The Maywood community is one of Arlington’s oldest neighborhoods and an example of a “trolley neighborhood” because its development was tied to the development of commuter railroads that served the area from 1906 to 1934. It was initially planned in five sections, with its primary development taking place between 1909 and 1929. It is bounded by Lorcom Lane, Lee Highway, Oakland St., and I-66.
The initial platting for the neighborhood began in 1909 and consisted of single family homes. Maywood homes today are primarily four-square, cottage, bungalow, Cape Cod, and two-story gable-front houses executed in the Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, Craftsman, or Tudor Revival styles. Maywood was designated an Arlington Historic District in 1990, and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. You can read more about Maywood as a historical area at the Department of the Interior’s Register of Historical Places here.
