Arlington History Through Objects and Ephemera
On exhibit at Central Library, October 2014
In observance of National Archives Month, the Center for Local History has created “Treasures from the Vault,” an exhibit of artifacts showcasing Arlington’s history and culture through the years.
Learn more about important Arlington residents, politics, businesses, neighborhoods, the arts, and much more.
The exhibit includes historical photographs, posters, puzzles, political ephemera, and even an old gas mask from the fire department!
The Center for Local History collections are always growing, and many of them are made possible by generous donations from local organizations and members of our community.
If you have old photographs, postcards, or any other materials you think we should add to our collections, please contact us. Help us collect, preserve, and share our community’s history.
The exhibit is open to the public and free of charge during regular library hours.
