Arlington, Virginia History
Once part of the Colony of Virginia and granted by Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron, the area is named for Henry Bennet, the 1st Earl of Arlington, who owned a plantation along the banks of the Potomac River. Washington Park Custis, Martha Washington's grandson, bought the plantation in 1802 and eventually passed it to his sister, Mary Anna Custis Lee, who was married to Confederate General Robert E. Lee (whose home, Arlington House, still stands atop a hill overlooking the city and is now the grounds on which Arlington Cemetery is sited).
Now, more than a century later, Arlington is a perfect marriage of rich history and cosmopolitan living. Home to more than 200,000 people and 42,000 families, Arlington is home to a cavalcade of characters. Residents live seamlessly amongst notable folks like Warren Beatty and Shirley MacLaine (who are brother and sister, in case you didn't know), Sandra Bullock, Katie Couric, Roberta Flack, and Zac Hanson.
