Old Glebe Walkabout
The community, close to 100 folks, joined WalkArlington, Arlington County Historic Preservation, and the Old Glebe Civic Association for a Walkabout through Arlington's tranquil Old Glebe neighborhood! This guided walking tour explores nearly two miles and ten stops of neighborhood highlights, from a sneak preview of interpretive exhibits now being installed at Fort Ethan Allen to a glimpse of the historic crossroads of Military Road and Chain Bridge, from a hike along the well-trodden trails of Gulf Branch Nature Center to a stroll upon the peaceful grounds of Walker Chapel.
The Old Glebe Walkabout featured a behind-the-scenes tour of the new Civil War exhibits at Fort Ethan Allen, led by staff intimately involved with this long-awaited project. Part of Arlington's celebration of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the Fort Ethan Allen interpretive installation will formally open in spring 2014.
If you missed this wonderful tour, be sure to download the map and take a lovely walk with your family or friends.
