Williamsburg is a quiet neighborhood of gently rolling hills that has recently been rediscovered, emerging as the site of more newly constructed homes over the last decade than any other Arlington community. Situated along the northern edge of Arlington County bordering the Fairfax County Line, Williamsburg offers a mix of modest, affordable homes including ramblers, brick and wood colonials as well as bungalows. Because there is little land available for the construction of new single-family homes, older homes are being razed to the ground to make way for newly constructed models to accommodate modern tastes.
The highest point in Williamsburg is Minor Hill at 464 feet. A historic landmark, Minor Hill Park dates back to Civil War times when Union troops built an observation tower to gain intelligence about Confederate troop movements. Williamsburg’s small town charm is still evident in the Williamsburg Neighborhood Shopping Center which was built in the 1950s and includes a drugstore, bank, hair salon, and neighborhood favorites, such as the Backyard Barbeque.
Williamsburg is bounded by North Kensington Street, North Trinidad Street, North 27th Street and the Arlington County line.
