Towns: Arlington


Arlington, incorporated as a town in 1807, was a village of Cambridge known as Menotomy in the Revolutionary period. Paul Revere and William Dawes traversed this area on their way to Concord and the bloodiest battles of April 19, 1775 took place in this town. Today Arlington is a lively suburb with a burgeoning local arts scene, beautiful parks and open spaces, and business districts that boast unique local retailers and two theaters.
