A community with two distinct names, Halls Hill/High View Park’s development can be traced back to the 1880s when the land consisted of sprawling farmland owned by Basil Hall. He sold most of his land to his freed slaves after the Civil War.
For many years, this community was known as Halls Hill until the 1960s when it merged with an adjacent area known as High View Park because of its spectacular view of the County. Halls Hill/High View Park housing options were typically modest single-family homes and simple garden apartments but the neighborhood has since seen a rise in the development of larger tear-downs and highrise apartments and condo buildings.
Residents at Halls Hill/High View Park do their shopping at Garden City Shopping Center, Lee Harrison Shopping Center, and Lee Heights Shops. They buy their groceries at Safeway, India A1 Grocery, and Giant Food. For recreation activities, the residents go to High View Park, Slater Park, and Langton-Brown Park.
Public schools that serve Halls Hill/High View Park include Glebe Elementary school, Williamsburg Middle, and Langston High and Yorktown High schools.
Halls Hill/ High View Park is bounded by Lee Highway to the north, N George Mason Dr to the west, N Culpeper St to the east, and 16th St N to the south. Although Halls Hill/ High View Park does not have a Metro Station, it’s nearest to the East Falls Church Metro on the Orange and Silver lines.
