A nonprofit retirement community

Culpepper Garden is an award-winning, affordable, nonprofit residential community in Arlington with 340 apartments for seniors aged 62 and older.

In 1975, Culpepper Garden opened its first independent living residence with 204 apartments. To meet increasing demand, it added 63 independent living apartments in 1992.

Responding to the growing need for supportive services, Culpepper Garden in 2000 proudly opened its assisted living wing with 73 apartments. It was the first low-income assisted living residence of its type in the United States, and it remains the only such facility in Arlington County.

Culpepper Garden is located on five acres in the heart of Arlington. It is named in honor of Dr. Charles Culpepper, a botanist who owned the property and made it available for housing for low-income seniors. Today, Culpepper Garden is a model for senior affordable housing because of the services we provide through our extraordinary partnerships with Arlington County, state and federal agencies, the faith-based community, volunteers, and community leaders.

New Executive Director

Welcome to Culpepper Garden, an affordable community both independent and assisted living -- that older adults have called home for over 40 years. In 2017 we will begin the exciting renovation of the 204 apartments built in 1975 to improve energy efficiency, accessibility and our community space. Culpepper Garden is a wonderful Arlington resource where people with limited income can age in place. Please contact me to visit, volunteer or donate!
