Founded in 1887
The Arlington Historical Society was originally called the Cemetery Society when founded in 1887 by members dedicated to gathering and preserving historical information and items relating to the founding and growth of the city.  Dedicated residents by birth or by choice continue to join the society understanding how important the past is in relationship to the present.   Whether an old timer or a newcomer we invite you to become a part of our family who work tirelessly to save, restore and preserve Arlington's historical treasures.

Keeping up with the times, the Arlington Historical Society has re-branded itself. We are now Your History Connection!

We are connecting you to Arlington history, through our Fielder Museum, Historic Fielder House, Knapp Heritage Park, and the Historic Cemeteries on Arkansas Lane. We do this through tours, programs, changing exhibits, and special events. We present the Face of Arlington - people, places, and things through these venues.
