Arlington Courthouse

These are a few pictures from the Courthouse-Clarendon area of Arlington.     When I first came into the FS, I used to walk through this area.   There were a lot of little restaurants, some pawn shops and a lot of construction.    It is very nice now.   They made a lot of progress in twenty years and Arlington has done a very good job of transit oriented development.  

This is the memorial tree to the boys of Arlington killed in World War I.  Of course, back then they only had one world war so it didn’t have a number.  It says the tree was planted in 1923.  It doesn’t seem old enough.  I wonder if it was replaced.
