Significance: The five buildings that composed Lawyers' Row in Arlington represent a statewide tradition of county seat architecture and planning. In Virginia's early history, the court-house area of a county was a cultural and political hub where businessmen, lawyers, and merchants converged. The modest Lawyers' Row was unusual as one of the state's only twentieth-century groupings, and here mingled an intimate community of prominent life-long Arlington jurists.
