There’s a new historic district within Arlington’s borders.

Officials have added a historic district around the Highland Park/Overlee Knolls neighborhood to the Virginia Landmarks Register. The historic district is one of 16 sites recently added to the register, according to the Associated Press.

The district is bordered by N. Quantico Street to the west, 22nd Street N. to the north, N. Lexington Street and N. McKinley Road to the east, and I-66 to the south.

According to a neighborhood listserv, the historic designation will not place additional restrictions on a property owner’s ability to modify or tear down a home.

    I looked at the outline on the map and thought it was weird they were encroaching on Westover. But looking at the civic association maps, that is pretty accurate.

    So if the new farmers market is held in the McKinley School parking lot, does it have to be called the Highland Park Overlee Knolls Farmers Market?

    Will the library be renamed the Highland Park Overlee Knolls [b]Ranch Library?

    In other words, it is an attempt at self massage their own ego.
