The City of Arlington established the Local Landmark Program in 2009 to recognize structures and sites that are significant to the history and culture of Arlington. As of May 2021, there are 41 Local Landmarks throughout the City. A list of approved Local Landmarks has been available, but now, residents can see all the Local Landmarks in an interactive map developed by the City of Arlington. The map shows all 41 Local Landmarks, including a photo of the structure and a short history of the Local Landmarks. Also included on the map are special areas of the City such as the Old Town Historic District, the South Center Street Historic District, and The Hill – Historic African American Community.

In conjunction with the launch of the map, the City has produced a video of a few of the Local Landmark properties. Be sure to check back regularly as the map and photo album will be updated with new Local Landmarks as they are approved.

Any property owner can apply for designation as a Local Landmark and received a medallion or subject marker so that the sites are easy to locate for residents and visitors alike may enjoy them. Applications are reviewed by the Landmark Preservation Commission and approved by the City Council. If you would like to apply for a Local Landmark designation, the Landmark Preservation Commission can help research the property to prepare an application.

The Landmark Preservation Commission is excited to launch the Local Landmark Interactive Map as a part of the National Preservation Month celebration.
