Walk in the footsteps of George Washington on a guided walking with a local historian. In 1775, George Washington bought 1200-acres of forest in what is now Arlington. After the Revolutionary War, he returned home and surveyed his property. On the walking tour you'll see the Ball-Sellers House (the oldest house in Arlington), see the survey markers used by Washington in 1785, visit historic springs, and visit the site of a mill built by George Washington's step-grandson and more. The tour begins and ends at the Ball-Sellers House rain or shine. It starts at 1:30. This is a free tour, open to the public. All ages are welcome, there are some hills but most of the walk is easy going. The full walking tour takes about two hours. Maps will be provided. Wear good walking shoes, dress for the weather, and bring water.
