What about Arlington’s history is important to you? Where do you go to learn about our history as a community? How do you think our history should be collected, preserved and shared?
Arlington County is asking the public to help it with an initiative launched by the County Manager in January 2015. The Arlington Historical Task Force is a group of residents who have been examining how we currently collect and manage historical records and examining best practices of communities across the nation to help us establish priorities moving forward.
The group plans to make recommendations to the County Manager by the end of this year.
Preserving Arlington’s historic government and community records is a big job, and we need your feedback. We want to better understand what aspects of our history you most value, and we want your great ideas about how the County can make its historic records more accessible to the public and future generations.
