About the Town of Arlington
When it was settled in 1635, Arlington was dubbed Menotomy. As most history enthusiasts know, Paul Revere’s midnight ride took him through Menotomy. In 1807, the town was incorporated under the name West Cambridge. And in another naming twist, it was renamed Arlington in 1867. The name was chosen as a way to pay tribute to individuals buried in Virginia’s Arlington National Cemetary. Arlington’s rich history is evident throughout the town. The Arlington Center Historic District, Menotomy Rocks Park, and Uncle Sam Memorial Statue commemorate historic events. Beautiful neighborhoods, commerce, ease of transportation, bodies of freshwater, and wonderful views of Boston’s city skyline make the Town of Arlington truly special.
