Donate your papers and photos to the Center for Local History and help to tell Arlington's story!
Center for Local History Archivist Heather shows an Arlington yearbook and a 1935 Franklin Property Atlas to a class of 4th graders at Barrett Elementary School.
During Pride Month, we had hoped to share a story from our archive relating to Arlington's LGBTQIA+ community and history. Unfortunately, we were unable to do so because our collection currently has a shortage of materials related to these topics.
We'd love to fix this gap, and many others, so that we may continue to fulfill our mission to document all of Arlington's diverse community. If you have photos, newsletters, flyers, and/or other materials (physical or digital) related to untold Arlington County history - LGBTQIA+ or anything else - we'd love to add it to the Community Archive.
To donate, visit the Center for Local History at Central Library, call us at 703-228-5966, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
