Barcroft: Neighborhood Center / Village Center
On the Pike from Glencarlyn Park to S. Walter Reed
Barcroft retail businesses are on the edge of the Barcroft Community some are facing Columbia Pike, others are facing S. George Mason Drive. I have also included apartment buildings in that area.
Barcroft Shopping Center
Barcroft Shopping Center was built in 1949, and faces Columbia Pike. It is between Glencarlyn Park and South Buchanan Street. The first retail store in this area was a country store built about 1885 and owned by Oscar Haring.

Comment from Columbia Pike Plaza Page
"Wasn't Barcroft hardware in the tiny strip mall at Buchanan and Columbia Pike. At one time that store was next to a real estate office... I'm trying to remember the name of the guy who owned the Hardware store -- he lived on First Street." Jim Land 01/25 /2018
S. Buchanan Street to S. Walter Reed
Trafalgar Flats is a block of condos with retail space on the first floor. It is on the corner of S. Buchanan St. & Columbia Pike. At the moment none of the retail space has been rented. Trafalga Flats actually has two addresses. The section facing Buchanan St. is 909 S. Buchanan Street and facing Columbia Pike is 4707 Columbia Pike. A new transite station is in the process of being installed and will replace the bus stop shelters facing the Pike . See the Trafalgar Flats page for more information.
