Shirlington Homes For Sale in Arlington VA
The neighborhood of Shirlington has had an interesting evolution. The name stems from a combination of Shirley Highway (I-395) and Arlington. Development in the neighborhood was largely driven by the construction of the Shirlington Shopping Center in 1944. This enormously popular complex was expanded and renamed as the Village in Shirlington in the 1980's, repositioning itself in the modern mall era. Today, the once-traditional Main Street community has been transformed into Arlington's Arts and Entertainment District, an exciting and forward-thinking urban village.
