Built in 1891 as the Hume School, this is the oldest school building in Arlington County. It now houses the Arlington Historical Museum. The building is designated as a Virginia State Historical Landmark and is also on the National Register of Historic Sites. 

The AHS Museum is just a half mile from Pentagon City and the Metro. It boasts a permanent exhibit on the Civil War, and displays Civil War memorabilia and artifacts. It has the only permanent exhibit from the Arlington Black Heritage Museum. It is the only one of its kind anywhere in Arlington that is open and available to the public, for free!  The school/museum building itself is named after a Confederate Colonel, Frank Hume, from Arlington, who donated the adjacent land as a playground for the school.
