History

The area that now belongs to Arlington County used to be a part of Fairfax County. Somewhere during the 18th century, it was given over to the newly-formed federal government by its previous owner, the Commonwealth of Virginia. The county got its name after the first Earl of Arlington, who was also the owner of the Arlington Plantation. In 1870, Alexandria was separated from the county in which it was until then situated, that is, the area that was called Alexandria County. To avoid the confusion caused by two different places having the same name, it was decided that the county needs to be renamed. That is how Arlington County first came into existence. This all happened in 1920, and marks the birth of the new county.
