More than a year ago, Charlie Clark, local author, historian, and AHS member, had a great idea: show what Arlington looked like in the 1920s to commemorate the renaming of the county to Arlington from Alexandria. He assembled a team of volunteers, and found a tech company who would help. The results are on this AHS website and it is a cornerstone of the centennial commemoration of our county name. Charlie Clark will kick off our commemorative year by demonstrating the first ever interactive StoryMap. He’ll talk about the historical resources he relied on and the difficult choices he made about which sites to select. Join us for a walk back through history.
This program is free and open to the public. It will take place in the Reinsch Library auditorium on the Main Campus of Marymount University. This event is part of a monthly series of public programs sponsored by the Arlington Historical Society and Marymount University’s Department of History and Politics.
