The Earle M. Winslow House in Arlington County, an excellent example of the Streamline Moderne architectural style. Constructed in 1940, the single-family dwelling was one of nine extant Streamline Moderne-style houses in Arlington at the time of its listing. Along with its eight counterparts, the Winslow House contrasts sharply with the substantial number of Colonial Revival-style and ranch houses constructed in the residential communities that rapidly arose in the county during the mid-20th century, when the federal government expanded its workforce. Earle M. Winslow, an economist who was with the U.S. Tariff Commission, traveled extensively throughout Europe, where he became familiar with modernistic architecture and the Streamline Moderne.
