Maywood

It’s one of Arlington’s oldest residential districts, but the Maywood of today serves as a shining example of years of work and progress. The neighborhood actually dates back generations, and many homes in the area can be traced back to the early 1900s.

Some homes in Maywood are original, prefabricated mail-order homes that were selected from the pages of a Sears, Roebuck and Co catalog. Other homes in the early trolley suburb of Maywood vary from Colonials to Queen Anne, Craftsman and even Tudor Revival-style homes.  Read more about Maywood.

More About Maywood

Maywood History

Maywood is home to hundreds of buildings that can be traced back throughout the 20th century. While some of those homes sadly fell into disrepair, over the past few decades, the neighborhood of Maywood has undergone a sort of transformation.

At one time the area was filled with rental properties and a less desirable vibe, but things have certainly changed. Community efforts to turn things around finally paid off in 1990 when the entire neighborhood of Maywood became a designated Arlington Historic District.

By the early 2000s, the community had secured a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. That’s helped local residents in their pursuit of retaining some of the original charm of the community.

Because the homes aren’t being torn down and replaced by newer construction, many are instead being fixed up and brought back to much of their former glory and appeal. These days it’s common again to see neighbors visiting on front porches and gathering together for things like wine clubs and book clubs.

Maywood Recreation

The Maywood Mini Park isn’t large, but it does provide some green space in the neighborhood. You’ll find a playground and some shade trees in the quarter-acre park. Nearby Thrifton Hill Park additionally offers some nature trails and paths, plus green space, a picnic table and access to Custis Trail.
