Oh, to sled down that hill...
The Dudley Family Home stood on a hill on North Military Road - the same hill where you now find the Cherrydale Branch Library, one of Arlington’s beloved neighborhood libraries.
This photo, taken in the 1920s, comes from the Dudley Family Photographs, 1920-1950 collection. The collection contains an assortment of intimate family portraits, beach adventures, local business, and street scenes, taken mostly during the 1920s and 1930s. Examining the Dudley Family images allows viewers to step back into time and feel as though we are part of their adventures…

I love all the old photos. This one gives me another reason to love the Cherrydale Branch Library!!
Do you have background on the Dudley Family? It would be nice to learn about those who lived there.

Unfortunately not much is known about the Dudley Family, which is why this post is so light on details about their life in Arlington. However, the archivists will continue to look for further information about them in our records, and we will definitely share anything that we find.
