Maywood was founded in 1903 by Arlington Attorney General and developer Crandal Mackey. The community was originally a street-car suburb constructed along the Great Falls and Old Dominion rail line. From its founding to the present many of the community's residents work for the federal government. In 1915 the community was made up of approximately 39 late-Victorian homes by 1915, and by 1965 that number had grown to more than 900 homes.
