Preservation Arlington is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and improving the quality of Arlington’s distinct architectural heritage. Through education and advocacy, Preservation Arlington brings together people and organizations to influence the future of Arlington’s historic buildings, landscapes and communities. Preservation Arlington was originally founded in 1989 as the Arlington Heritage Alliance.
As part of our efforts, Preservation Arlington has shared information with the community about recent efforts to preserve the property at 6407 Wilson Boulevard (Febrey-Lothrop House), but has not taken a position on the proposed historic designation of the site.
We are aware a private citizen of Arlington County has compared the destruction of this property to destroying a portion of Auschwitz.
Preservation Arlington finds this comment and comparison to be completely inappropriate. Such comments have no place in our community where we expect reasonable and respectful dialogue on all issues.
