Waverly Hills History & Development
Colonial Virginia law required that each parish of the Church of England be coupled with a glebe: a plantation or farm from which the rector would draw an income. The Fairfax Parish glebe included 517 acres and what is now known as The Glebe House. The Glebe House still stands in present day Waverly Hills and has been the greatest catalyst for the maintenance and development of the surrounding area. The land and house changed hands over the years to several noteworthy Arlington families until finally the land had to be subdivided in order to save the house.
The introduction of steam and electric railways throughout Arlington County at the turn of the 20th century attracted new residents as well as real estate developers and by the 1920's and 1930's the development of Waverly Hills was in full swing. Development slowed during World War II, but took off again following V-J Day to meet the demands of what would be a population boom like no other. The current landscape of Waverly Hills is nearly identical to that of the early 1950's.
