Our History on Display
On Exhibit at the Aurora Hills Branch Library, July – August 2015
Like most museums, the Arlington Historical Museum (located in the Hume School) has more artifacts than can be displayed at any one time.
So the Arlington Historical Society recently launched an effort to locate display areas in public spaces around the County in order to bring the history of Arlington to more people.
The Aurora Hills Branch Library’s exhibit includes maps, photos and artifacts from the ring of Civil War forts – most of which would have been within firing distance of this library:
The Historical Society currently has two other exhibits in the community:
- The Center for Local History at Central Library – Artifacts from the Ball-Sellers House, the oldest building in the county, a farm house built around 1750.
- Arlington Village Community Center – Toys and pictures reflecting the childhood memories of the early residents, in honor of the 75th anniversary of the apartments.
