Arlington in Arlington County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Arlington County in 1921 / John M. Walton, Architect
Walton began designing homes during the mid-20th century wave of suburbanization. As the country's suburbs expanded after World War II, Walton's firm designed several residential subdivisions in the northern part
From 1955 until 1990, Walton lived at "His Lordship's Kindness," the 18th-century Georgian colonial mansion he restored in Clinton, Maryland. Walton passed away at his final home, Richland Farm in Cordova, Maryland, at the age of 87.
