Description:
Lyon Village is a neighborhood, or “urban village” located in Arlington County, Virginia, along Lee Highway . It is approximately one mile west of Rosslyn and less than a mile north of Clarendon, of which it is sometimes considered a sub-neighborhood.

A shopping center located at the confluence of Lee Highway, Spout Run Parkway and Interstate 66 and a community house both serve the neighborhood. Parts of the neighborhood are near the Clarendon and Court House stations of Metrorail's Orange Line.

History

According to the Arlington County Department of Libraries, Robert Cruit, an immigrant from Devonshire, England, purchased land in the Clarendon area in 1825 for a farm. In 1923, his heirs sold the land to developer Frank Lyon, who subdivided it into tracts for residential development, including the eponymous Lyon Village. Most of the single family homes in the neighborhood were constructed in the 1920s and 1930s.
