The Arlington Historical Society was developed in 1999 as a part of the city of a five-year plan for the city of Arlington because of citizens' desire to preserve their city's history. Its goals are to collect and preserve artifacts, records and other information concerning the city's history. It also strives to restore local historic monuments and buildings and other items to their original appearances, and records of these restoration projects, once completed, become a part of the society's collection which is available to the public.
