The Center for Local History is getting a new name.

Charlie Clark (1953 – 2023) was a journalist, author, researcher, and board member of the Arlington Historical Society. Charlie wrote many books and articles about Arlington history, including a regular column titled “Our Man in Arlington.” He often researched and spent time at the Arlington Public Library’s Center for Local History. Join us for a reception in his honor as we rededicate this space as the Charlie Clark Center for Local History.
