Glebewood Village

Description:

Glebewood Village is a community consisting of 104 row-houses developed by Mace Properties, Inc. from 1937 to 1938. The small dwellings were affordable options, costing less than $5,000, for those drawn to D.C. for employment. In 1942 Arlington changed its zoning laws to restrict row-house construction, making Glebewood's Colonial Revival row-homes a rarity in the county. Glebewood was a white community which bordered the African American community of Hall's Hill.
