The Hume Springs neighborhood is named after a spring that once stood on the property of Mr Frank Hume and was eventually dismantled and buried under ground after the turn of the 20th century. It was common for Mr Hume to entertain wealthy guests from across Potomac River who were looking for a country escape at his Warwick Estate. The spring fed into Four Mile Run stream which now separates the City of Alexandria and Arlington County. The last remaining natural portion of this stream can be seen between Hume Springs houses and the Cora Kelly School playground.
