KofC EDW 2473 in Arlington, Virginia is the second largest Knights of Columbus council in the Order. We serve as council for 4 local parishes.
Edward Douglass White is one of the largest Knights of Columbus Councils in the country. We serve as the Council for 4 local parishes and have well over 1,000 members. In addition, we're proud of our amazing "campus". A historic stone mansion sitting proudly atop a sprawling green hill in north Arlington serves as our Council Home. This main house serves as the fraternal hub for our organization--a respite in the DC metro area where fine conversation and friendly faces are always on tap. In addition, we have a large banquet facility with full and complete catering operation. This serves as a lovely location for weddings and parties for members and non-members alike. Also, EDW is home to a large recreational swimming facility including 2 large pools, a baby pool, a full-service snackbar, picnic grounds, and more. [The property and all facilities at 5115 Little Falls Rd, Arlington, Va. are solely owned and operated by the Columbus Club of Arlington, Inc.]

EDW: The June Knight Life is now out!
New Stairs in the Picnic Area. Believe it or not, Pool and Picnic season at EDW is here. And we have a new improvement to the area leading down to the playground behind the tennis courts. Thanks to David Howard, a Eagle Scout Candidate from Boy Scout Troop 111 at St Agnes, W-L High School student and son of EDW member Chris Howard, We have now have a new set of stairs. The stairs will provide a safer way down the hill for young and old alike, and should help prevent erosion on the hill and runoff into the playground. Under the watchful eye of Columbus Club Board Member Tom Hazzard and with his fellow troop members, David has designed and constructed a great stairway. Thanks David for your hard work and for improving our campus. And good luck on earning your Eagle Scout Award.
Nice little history on the property owned by our close friends, the Missionhurst Catholic Order...
