Ball Sellers House
The Ball-Sellers House Museum is the oldest house in Arlington County and AHS restored it to what it looked like during the colonial era. Step back in time in a home built in the 1740s. A knowledgeable docent provides visitors with a free tour that shows visitors how the house was built and how John Ball and his family lived there in colonial times. You’ll also learn who else lived in the house through the centuries, including William Carlin, a tailor for George Washington and namesake of Glencarlyn.
Our season opening day is special. Join a docent in colonial costume for the tour and for colonial era libations and sweet treats.
The House located at 5620 3rd Street, South in the Glencarlyn neighborhood is open free every Saturday afternoon from 1:00 – 4:00 pm from April through October and the summer holidays of Independence, Memorial, and Labor Days.
