The Arlington-Fairfax Line connected Fairfax with
Washington D.C. from 1904-1939 and briefly terminated near this location until 1908 when it was
extended to the courthouse after the original
station was destroyed by fire. The new stop served
both as a passenger station and a stop for tourists
to visit historic sites. A freight depot replaced
the station near this location spawning a small
commercial center, the remnants of which remained
until 2009. A bedroom community grew along Cedar
Avenue where the trolley made a stop after
leaving this location.
