History of Property


To our surprise we had difficulty obtaining information about Cambridge Courts.  We contacted The Virginia Historical Room

at the Arlington County Library and they had little success in locating information about the property.  The only information

that we were able to confirm is that the year of construction was 1943 and condominium conversion began in 1984 and

was completed in 1986.


We searched many Virginia and Arlington historical websites and have included some of the information that we

located about Lyon Park, our closest community neighbor, as well as some general historical information about Arlington

and garden style apartments.
