Beyond unforgettable, a visit to Arlington leaves an indelible impression on the spirit.

Located on a parcel of land that once belonged to George Washington Parke Custis, George Washington's step-grandson, Arlington National Cemetery has been in use for military burials since May 13, 1864. Before that time, the property was the family home of Custis’ daughter, Mary Anna Randolph Custis and and her husband Robert E. Lee.

During the Civil War, the land was used as a camp and headquarters for Federal Troops. Later, it provided safe haven to former slaves who were heading north for the transition to freedom. The grounds of Arlington are a place of deep historic relevance, and it is arguably the most important of all Washington DC monuments and memorials.
