What defines Arlington Massachusetts? Is it historical significance? Being the birthplace of Uncle Sam, the location of the first children’s public library, and the site of most of the fighting when the British marched through it returning from the
OldNorthBridge at the start of the Revolutionary War – history is a large part.
What about its ideal location? Once a thriving agriculture and mill town,
Arlington's excellent access to metropolitan
Boston has made it a very desirable place to live.
Arlington is bordered by Belmont, Cambridge, Lexington, Medford, Somerville and Winchester. A mere 7 miles from
Arlington stands as a firmly established and highly developed bedroom community.
