HistoryEdit

The area was originally developed in 1927 as a residential junior college for women called Arlington Hall. Due to dwindling enrollment and the economic ramifications of the Great Depression, Arlington Hall was sold to the U.S. Army Signal Command in 1941. During and following World War II, Arlington Hall was a military intelligence center and employed over 8,000 people.[2]
