Rock Spring Property Values
One aspect of Rock Spring that sets it apart from other neighborhoods in Arlington County is that it is comprised entirely of single-family dwellings. Most houses are occupied by their owners, but even among the few rentals, no buildings are splintered into multiple apartments. There are also no businesses within Rock Spring's boundaries. Residents like it this way and are happy to drive a little for what they need, if it means keeping the small-town and almost rural feel intact.
Rock Spring History
Rock Spring got its start at the turn of the 20th century. The Arlington bank of the Potomac, like so many riverfronts of old, had, up to then, housed a rough and tumble crowd. Once enough citizens rallied to do away with the rowdy element, residents of DC began to build summer homes in the spacious, lush areas of Arlington. What we now know as Rock Spring, named for the nearby natural spring, was an obvious choice.
