The standing seam metal gable roof is topped by a four-sided wood cupola. It originally served as a meeting place for the newly formed Glencarlyn civic association and the Episcopal church congregation, provided a place for a variety of community social events. The building housed an elementary school from the 1920s to 1950. In 1953, it was returned by Arlington County as a community center.
