The George Crossman House, built in 1892, is a representative example of a Late Victorian vernacular farmhouse. One of the few remaining late-19th-century dwellings in the county and one of only two surviving houses that were originally part of a working dairy farm, the Crossman House is a two-story, wood-frame, T-shaped dwelling with a cross-gable roof. The exterior is clad in a combination of weatherboards and wood shingles and features an original wraparound porch with turned posts and balusters and intricate trim. The interior retains its original floor plan and features original plaster work, pocket doors, decorative wood moldings and cabinetry, stained-glass windows, a carved wooden staircase in the main entry hall, and period light and bathroom fixtures. In excellent condition, the house remained in the Crossman family for a period of 62 years, during which time it was one of Arlington’s most successful 20th-century dairy farms. None of the outbuildings associated with the dairy farm remain.
