Alcova Height Arlington History

 real estate developer, J Cloyd Byars, named Alcova Heights after buying 142 acres from the Columbia Land Company in 1921 for five cents a square foot. "Alcova" stands for Alexandria County, Virginia. There were many streets built by Byars, including Azalea Street (Quincy Street), Marconi Avenue (8th Street), Deepwood Avenue (9th Street), Springhill Street (Lincoln Street), Virginia Street (Monroe Street), and Linden Avenue (Oakland Street).

As of 1921, Alcova Heights was considered a highly accessible community. Columbia Pike and Glebe Road bordered the neighborhood. At the intersection of Columbia Pike with Walter Reed Drive, trolley service to Washington, Rosslyn, and Alexandria was available less than a mile down Columbia Pike.

Alcova Heights has a majority of single-family homes built between 1921 and 1950. There are at least two Sears houses in Alcova Heights. In the past fifty years, many additional single-family homes have been constructed through infill development.
