Why are we the John M. Langston Citizens Association?

To honor the man who played an important role in shaping African-American life following the Civil War.
John Mercer Langston was an American abolitionistattorney, educator, activist, diplomat, and politician. He was the founding dean of the law school at Howard University and helped create the department. He was the first president of what is now Virginia State University, a historically black university. And he was the first elected Black U.S. member of the House of Representatives from Virginia.

About Historic Preservation

What is the overall purpose of the Historic Preservation Grant project?

The overall purpose for the Historic Preservation project is to achieve designation of the Hall’s Hill-High View Park Community in the U.S. Department of the Interior –
National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places. 



Submit a nomination to the Virginia State Historic Preservation Office to request formal recognition of the Hall’s Hill-High View Park community’s historical significance.



Build stronger connections between our community members, greater-Arlington, and the Washington Metropolitan area by educating people about the significance of HHHVP’s history from the post-Civil War era to the present.



Encourage longevity and preservation of HHHVP as one of the remaining historically black neighborhoods in Arlington as neighborhood “revitalization” and “upscaling” efforts continue across Arlington County.
