In 1742, John Ball received a 166-acre land grant from Lord Fairfax and became one of the first settlers in this area. The oldest portion of the present house is a one-story 18th century log cabin that was probably built by John Ball. In 1772, six years after Ball's death, the property was acquired by William Carlin, once George Washington's tailor. The Carlin family was associated with this area for over a century thereafter. The two-story portion of the house was added about 1885. In 1975, Mrs. Marian Sellers, the last private owner, donated this structure to the Arlington Historical Society.
