About Maywood

Maywood is a residential neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia, bounded by Lorcom Lane to the north, I-66 to the east, Lee Highway to the south and North Nelson Street to the west.

The community was constructed between 1909 and 1941, with much of it platted by 1913 by Hugh A Thrift (of the Conservative Realty Company), on approximately 46 acres.

Maywood offers a wide variety of architectural styles, including the Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, Craftsman and Tudor Revival styles, as well as cottage and Cape Cod styles. There are even some mail-order houses from Sears and Aladdin, two purveyors of catalog homes of the time. Period homes typically feature front porches and gable roofs.

Maywood amenities include the Maywood Mini Park, Thrifton Hills Park, and ‘borrowed’ amenities from nearby Clarendon. Maywood is also mere blocks from the D.C. line, making Georgetown’s retail, restaurants and waterfront very accessible.

Maywood was designated a Local Historic District in 1990 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
