Clarendon is located in Arlington County, Virginia. In 1900 Clarendon was planned on a hill on Wilson Blvd. (formerly Georgetown Falls Foad). Once streetcars came to the area in the early 20th century this part of Arlington County was very busy with travelers. The streetcars were in service until the 1930’s.
In 1920 the town was up to be considered for incorporation but was soon shot down by the courts. However, it was elected for one of Arlington County’s post offices.
The Clarendon Metro Station opened in the 80’s and offerred the Clarendon area a diverse mix of shops, restaurants, bars, office space, and apartments.
