The tour starts at the Ball-Sellers House (the oldest house in Arlington at 5620 3rd Street, South in Arlington), and visits survey markers used by Washington in 1785, see a Washington, DC boundary stone, see historic springs, and visit the site of a mill built by George Washington’s step-grandson.

This walking tour is open FREE to the public, all ages welcome. Wear good walking shoes and dress for the weather. Bathroom facilities available at Long Branch Park. This walk is about a 3 mile tour over generally easy terrain.
