The Clarendon Elementary School was built in 1910 to serve the growing Clarendon neighborhood. The two-story symmetrical building was designed with a central hall and four classrooms on each floor. The school was renamed in 1925 to honor Matthew Fontaine Maury (1806-1873), known as the "Pathfinder of the Seas." He was a native Virginian, naval officer, geographer, and oceanographer. Prior to the Civil War he was the head of the Naval Observatory. In 1861 he resigned from the U.S. Navy to become a Commander in the Confederate Navy. The Maury Elementary School closed in 1975, and in 1977 opened as the Arlington Arts Center. The Maury School is a designated Arlington County Landmark and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
