As a business and civil rights leader, Leonard "Doc" Muse established Arlington County's first African-American owned and operated pharmacy at 2415 Shirlington Road in 1952. He overcame the challenges of racism, segregation, and inequality to bring necessary services to the surrounding Nauck neighborhood and beyond. At the Green Valley Pharmacy, African Americans and all races were treated with dignity and respect. Muse provided both medications and medical advice, while customers could dine-in at the lunch counter. The sense of community that Muse created decades ago helped unify Nauck and Arlington County. Designated an Arlington County Historic District in 2013, the Green Valley Pharmacy is a tribute to the lasting and powerful legacy of Leonard "Doc" Muse.
