Reading about local history is cool, but seeing it is even cooler – and now you can view hundreds of images of Arlington history online, thanks to the Virginia Room’s Local History project.
The Local History Collection on Flickr – including historic images of houses, neighborhoods, people, places, County government and more – is an excellent resource for patrons doing scholarly research, genealogical work, or simply pursuing a personal interest.
High-quality reproductions of these and other images from our collection can be ordered for a fee from The Virginia Room.
The Virginia Room of Arlington Public Library was established to provide a central reference service and repository for Arlington County’s historical resources as well as published materials for the region and state. The collection includes published and non-published materials that focus primarily on Arlington County (formerly Alexandria County), both current affairs and the history of the county.
