History: Arlington still clearly resembles a small early twentieth century rural community, with its collection of relatively unchanged commercial and residential buildings dating from more than 100 years ago. The town’s future was ensured by the establishment there of a railroad depot, cotton gin, and businesses catering to the needs of local farmers. Annexation by, and growth of, the City of Memphis have altered many of its surrounding communities, but Arlington has not lost its historical character.
