Our Mission

Established by Town Meeting in 1970, the Arlington Historical Commission is chartered under the town's by-laws to review and act upon any applications for building permits that involve exterior changes to historically or architecturally significant structures in Arlington.

In addition to administering Title VI, Article 6 of the town's by-laws, we also:

  • encourage appropriate maintenance and restoration of the town's historic structures and open spaces
  • educate townspeople on the significance of Arlington's architectural landmarks
  • provide guidance and advice to property owners
  • participate in the management and maintenance of the Whittemore-Robbins House
