Arlington is a modern community, rich in history, located only six miles to the northwest of Boston. The town of Arlington, founded over 350 years ago, was formerly known as West Cambridge but in 1867 the name changed to Arlington in honor of those buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VA. The town is known as the birthplace of Uncle Sam, a fact commemorated with the Uncle Sam Memorial Statue. 

Arlington is home to the first free public children's library known today as the Robbins Library.  It was also an important site during the beginning of the Revolutionary War and saw some of the worst fighting during the Battles of Lexington and Concord. 

Arlington has preserved many of the historical buildings in town including the Jason Russell House and also recreated its town common. The Cyrus E. Dallin Art Museum displays work of the famous local sculptor who lived and worked in Arlington. 

If you’re looking to get outdoors, Spy Pond is a great spot to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. The Minuteman Bikeway, an 11-mile bike and walking path, runs right next to the pond.
