Inscription.  In 1939, Gustav Ring purchased 53 acres of land from B.M. Smith to develop Arlington Village. Ring and architect Harvey Warwick designed a garden apartment community of 655 townhouses in the Colonial Revival style. It also incorporated a small shopping center and green spaces. The design and cost effectiveness of Arlington Village prompted the Federal Housing Administration to promote similar developments throughout the nation. In 2003, Arlington Village was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
