Historical Information

Waycroft is a neighborhood in north Arlington, Virginia. The neighborhood is frequently paired with Woodlawn to form Waycroft-Woodlawn and stretches south and east from Virginia Hospital Center to Glebe Road and I-66. The Women's Club of Waycroft was organized in 1940 with the purpose of uniting community women in promoting the advancement of the civic and social welfare and the objectives of the Virginia Federation of Women's Clubs. The club was a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs until disbanding in the 1990s.
