Monuments & Memories: Arlington’s Public Memorials


Adult Enrichment / Recreation & Travel -
Winter 2022

When we set famous names “in stone,” what story do we tell about ourselves and what is important to us? Take a tour through time and neighborhoods, examining the history, social context, and local events that gave rise to Arlington’s named and memorialized places. At this one-night lecture, learn who Gibbs, Thompson, Parmenter, Buzzell, and McClennan were, and discuss why we define our town, and ourselves, by their legacies. Discover eye-opening stories that also address the questions: How many memorials are dedicated to people of color? Is there really only ONE monument to a prominent female Arlingtonian?
