Clarendon-Courthouse Features & Amenities
Commercially, Clarendon-Courthouse is characterized by a number of unique businesses that have persisted in the good fight with larger chain retailers. Among some of the most interesting are ShoeFly, The Papery, and Ispirato: an art gallery come home decor boutique. Dining options include Faccia Luna: an urban pizzeria, and the cleverly named Earl's Sandwiches. For food, drink, and entertainment, Whitlow's on Wilson and Iota Club & Cafe serve all three.
In the true spirit of civic life, Clarendon-Courthouse hosts several events that help bring the community together. Among them are Georgetown Flea Market (Saturdays & Sundays), The Arlington Farmers' Market (Saturdays), and The Clarendon Farmers' Market (Wednesdays). Every Autumn Clarendon Day is held, providing good food and good fun for residents and visitors alike.
Clarendon-Courthouse History & Housing
Once called Courtlands, Clarendon-Courthouse is a beautifully eclectic neighborhood that has served as Arlington's backbone since it was established in 1899. It is comprised of two previously existing communities. To the west, Clarendon: Arlington's early economic engine. To the east, Courthouse, as one might guess, is Arlington's civic center. Clarendon-Courthouse was one of the earliest developments in Arlington, and when the land was put up for sale to the public, new residents flocked to the area, scooping up plots for $100; payable interest-free at a dollar a week. It is appropriate that both sections of the neighborhood retain their names, rather than trying for a hybrid. By virtue of each section's independent development, the neighborhood's offerings happen to be in distinct areas, but combined, they provide all that one needs from an urban community.
Typical of Washington DC bedroom communities, early housing options consisted mainly of tasteful single-family homes, including farmhouses, bungalows, and foursquares. There are also a number of infill duplexes and townhouse communities. Since the late 1970's when the neighborhood's Metrorail stations were completed, Clarendon-Courthouse has seen a significant population increase, leading to the development of many high-rises, including apartment complexes and condominiums.
