There once was a quaint house at 2116 N. Culpeper Street in the Hall’s Hill neighborhood of north Arlington. The house was located beside Heidelberg Bakery. Mature shade trees stood next to the house, and the lawn was maintained. Some time ago, however, a land speculator from out of town bought the house and the land. The house was leveled, replaced by weathered particle board supported by 2 by 4s. Weeds grew in the yard, trees were removed and trash was piled in the yard. A land speculator can do what they wish … if they have the proper permits from the County. But … what’s happened at 2116 N. Culpeper is a hazardous and ugly mark on the community as a whole, I believe, that reflects poorly for the neighborhood and north Arlington. There’s lots of hearsay, conjecture and rumors. Yet, does anyone have first-hand knowledge of what is planned?
