In a month that celebrates love, we don’t want to forget the citizens of our beautiful community! Where we come from is important to us and every smiling face, every small business, and every town landmark holds a special place in our hearts. Here are just a few of the things that make Arlington so very special:

Did you know Arlington, MA is the Birthplace of Uncle Sam? Arlington claims to be the birthplace of Uncle Sam. The town was home to Samuel Wilson, a meat packer during the War of 1812. Legend has it that soldiers labeled the food supplies with “U.S.” for the United States, but it was jokingly said to stand for “Uncle Sam,” and the nickname stuck!

Arlington has a popular outdoor destination called Arlington Reservoir. It offers a scenic setting for activities like walking, jogging, and picnicking. The reservoir is a tranquil spot that adds to the natural beauty of Arlington!

Arlington also has festivals each year. One of them is called Arlington International Film Festival (AIFF): This annual event showcases independent films from around the world. The AIFF aims to celebrate diverse cultures through the art of filmmaking and provides a platform for emerging filmmakers.
