What makes Maywood a Special Neighborhood in Arlington?
Established in 1909 as one of the oldest residential districts in Arlington, Maywood is a step back in time with beautiful tree-lined streets hugged by homes showcasing a variety of architectural styles, gabled roofs, front porches and mature landscaping.
Located minutes from Washington, D.C., Maywood is 46 acres with a population of about 1,400 and is known as one of the best places to live in Virginia.
Maywood is within walking distance to numerous amenities including the Custis Trail which is a 5.12-mile path that starts in Rosslyn at the Mount Vernon Trail near Key Bridge — where you can connect to the Capital Crescent Trail and the C&O Canal Towpath to head into D.C. and Maryland. Or travel along I-66 through Arlington County until reaching the trail’s junction with the W&OD Trail.
Many Maywood residents walk, run, bike, and even commute using this bustling trail — one of the many perks of living in the neighborhood. In addition to the Custis Trail, Maywood is home to Thrifton Hill Park and also within walking distance to the Hendry House, a popular special events venue.
Adjacent to the southern border of Maywood is the newly renamed Langston Boulevard which is home to many restaurants, retailers, and services, including the legendary The Italian Store which has delicious subs, sandwiches, NY style pizza, and a large selection of Italian wines and goods. Other great neighborhood destinations include Tarbouch Cafe, BRG Arlington, and Big Wheel Bikes.
Maywood has nearly 300 buildings that are in the Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, Craftsman and Tudor Revival styles. The neighborhood also includes buildings from every decade of the 20th and 21st centuries. The oldest buildings date to the 1900s and 1910s and are primarily Queen Anne and Colonial Revival four-squares, cottages and two-story gable-front houses. The Craftsman-style four-square and bungalow became more prominent in the late 1910s and 1920s.
During the 1930s, the infill cottage and Cape Cod housing was constructed largely of the Tudor Revival and Colonial Revival styles. Several homes have been identified as prefabricated mail-order houses from such companies as Sears, Roebuck & Company and Aladdin.
The neighborhood is a true Arlington treasure and definitely one to visit. Connect with neighborhood experts Anne Cronin and Linda Murphy to learn more about Maywood and other surrounding areas!
