The Ball-Sellers House invites you to a guided walking tour led by local historian, Kevin Vincent.
In 1775, George Washington bought 1200-acres in what is now Arlington. After the Revolutionary War, he returned home and surveyed his property. On the walking tour you’ll trace his steps. The tour starts at the Ball-Sellers House (the oldest house in Arlington), and you will visit survey markers used by Washington in 1785, see a Washington, D.C. boundary stone, see historic springs, and visit the site of a mill built by George Washington’s step-grandson.
This walking tour is open FREE to the public, all ages welcome. Bathroom facilities are available in Long Branch Nature Center. Wear good shoes and dress for the weather. This is about a 3 mile tour over generally easy terrain.
