We asked you to share your stories, memories, or favorite things about Langston Boulevard with us. Check out this new story about the Dominion Electric Supply Company, Inc.

With one truck, one employee, and a small storefront on Langston Boulevard, Meyer H. Sharlin started selling electrical supplies in 1940. In 1947, the company moved to its current headquarters at 5053 Langston Boulevard, which at the time was one-third the size of the current building. Still family-owned and -operated, Dominion Electric has been a landmark establishment for over 80 years. Many customers have fond memories of visiting the showroom with their parents as children.

Congratulations to landscape architect/educator #JulieBargmann founder of #D.I.R.T.studio, for being the inaugural laureate of the #CorneliaHahnOberlander International Landscape Architecture Prize for her impact on public landscape. Bargmann who is 63, has said, “I want to be like Cornelia when I grow up.” Bargmann developed "Watermarks" found in South Arlington along #FourMileRun that mark underground stormwater pipes symbolically visible to users of the trail. This #publicart highlights the need for environmental stewardship and awareness of the Four Mile Run stream restoration efforts. #JulieBargmann thank you for your contributions! ...and we want to be like you when we grow up.

Did you know that on February 2, 1959, Stratford Junior High School became the first public school in the Commonwealth of Virginia to be desegregated? The building reopened in 2019 as Dorothy Hamm Middle School, named after Arlington resident and civil rights activist Dorothy M. Hamm who fought for school desegregation. While the school is in Cherrydale, it borders the area and serves the broader neighborhoods.

In July 2021, the Arlington County Board adopted Langston Boulevard as the new name for Lee Highway after John Mercer Langston. To learn more about John M.

Here is something that came up on the Kojo show recently: An artist without studio space is a "former artist." Art creation space has been neglected in DC Metro area cultural plans. DC government has been more concerned with arts presentation space, which now serves touring artists from elsewhere. 3 decades of DC cultural policy has effectively exported DC artists and imported artists from other jurisdictions. Mike Licht – Washington DC
Those trips to San Francisco and Ashland were wonderful for all of us. Awards for regional theater were hung with pride in the Ashland lobby. Our annual trips there in May of each school year were financed by hard- working students, who paid only for their own food. Many equity actors performed excellent plays, both Shakespeare and contemporary productions. I have fond memories of those artistic adventures too. Thanks,Carlos, for reminding me of those enjoyable times. Diane Howard
