Now a fully recognized neighborhood, complete with a very active civic association, Madison Manor was originally part of East Falls Church. Shortly after that community was annexed by Arlington County, the development of the Madison Manor subdivision began. Prior thereto, the land was well-maintained and well-inhabited, by a number of prominent citizens. Among them were two doctors: Dr. Louis Gott and Dr. Thomas Talbott, both of whose pre-Civil-War homes still stand. Dr. Gott's hunting lodge, Buena Vista is the oldest remaining dwelling in what is now Madison Manor.
Madison Manor development began at the end of the great depression and the single-family homes there are characteristic of their eras. Sturdily-built Colonials lined freshly-paved streets in the 1940's and the 1950's saw the construction of numerous ramblers. The last major development in Madison Manor, was a string of 1970's townhomes that overlook Madison Manor Park.
