The Arlington Historical Museum is hosting a unique exhibit of artifacts selected by our Collection Manager, Haley Wallace. This exhibit features artifacts that may be thought provoking, inspiring, or just plain fun. All were donated to the Arlington Historical Society and they represent a wide variety of Arlingtonians and our history. This exhibit will last throughout the summer.
While you are there, you can tour the entire spectrum of Arlington history in the permanent exhibits on the main floor. On the second floor, you can ring the historic Hume School bell and see a classroom as it would have existed when the building was used as a school from 1893-1956.
For kids we have a hands on exhibit of a variety of artifacts that are predecessors to things we use everyday. We also have hats from different historic periods for kids to try on.
The Arlington Historical Museum is located at 1805 South Arlington Ridge Road. It is open FREE, Fridays-Sundays from 1-4 pm.
