DescriptionJoin the Arlington Historical Society on an archaeological dig this summer at the Ball-Sellers House, the oldest structure in Arlington. We’ll be hunting for evidence of a section of the house torn down before 1920. We also hope to unearth clues about how the residents lived over the past 270 years. Please email BSH@arlingtonhistoricalsociety.org for details. We’ll be conducting the dig on Saturdays and Sundays through the end of September.

The Ball-Sellers House was built in the 1740s by farmer John Ball. William Carlin, tailor to George Washington, bought the cabin after Ball’s death. Three generations of Carlins lived there and Carlin became the namesake of the Glencarlyn neighborhood.
