Arlington, VA

The origins of the Columbia Pike can be traced back to 1810, when Congress chartered the Columbia Turnpike Company. Two centuries later, the Pike is a lively, diverse and developing corridor.

Tonight historian John Paul Liebertz will recount the early days of Columbia Pike and describe the people and events that have shaped the Pike’s progress from rural byway to commercial center.

The presentation will take place at 7:00 p.m. at Arlington Central Library (1015 North Quincy Street).
