Arlington Historical Society


I joined the Arlington Historical Society in October 2020. It was a spontaneous decision — I always had an interest in history but didn’t know anything about local history. Since joining, local history has become a passion of mine. Even though I’ve lived in this area my whole life, I never learned about its past. I’m discovering it now — it has such a vibrant history.

I wrote some articles for the Arlington Historical Society’s newsletter in 2021. Then, in January 2022, I took over as the newsletter editor. I’ve also started doing some of our social media posts on Facebook. It’s been a rewarding experience, and I enjoy doing it.

Here you’ll find my articles written for the Arlington Historical Newsletter, entire issues of the newsletter that I authored and edited, event photos, and more coming soon.
