The Arlington Historical Society will host a Washington Forest History Walk on Saturday, April 9 beginning at 1:30 p.m. at the Ball-Sellers House, 5620 3rd St. South.
After the Revolutionary War, George Washington returned to Virginia and surveyed, with Moses Ball, the 1,200 acres he had purchased before the war. (Moses Ball was the brother of John Ball, for whom the circa-1740s Ball-Sellers House is named).
The three-mile walking tour will visit survey markers used by Washington, a D.C. boundary stone and the site of a mill built by Washington’s step-grandson.
The program is free; participants should wear good walking shoes.
