George Washington’s Forest Walking Tour

Ball-Sellers House

5620 3rd Street, South

Arlington, Virginia 22204

Walk in the footsteps of George Washington on a guided walking tour with a local historian. In 1775, George Washington bought 1200-acres of forest in what is now Arlington. After the Revolutionary War, he returned home and surveyed his property. On the walk you’ll see the Ball-Sellers House (the oldest house in Arlington), visit survey markers used by Washington in 1785, and visit historic springs, and the site of a mill built by George Washington’s step-grandson and more. The walk begins and ends at the Ball-Sellers House. Free to the public. All ages able to walk 3-6 miles on generally easy terrain are welcome. Wear good walking shoes and dress for the weather.
