Event Description

Did you know that Clarendon tried to secede from Arlington County to become its own municipality? The resulting court case in 1922 helped make Arlington what it is today.  Join our speaker, Sean Denniston, as he explains the case, what spurred it, and how the ruling has had lasting impact on what Arlington looks like today.

Sean Denniston has been a resident of Crystal City since 2007. He has a bachelor’s degree from Williams College and a master’s degree from Oxford University both in history and a law degree from Boston College. He  is on the AHS Board of Directors and serves as the AHS Secretary.  He is also a docent and all-around volunteer at the Arlington Historical Museum.
