“We are not makers of history. We are made by history.” -Martin Luther King.
This quote is indicative of the museums mission. History is what makes us who we are. It is up to us, as a community, to preserve and cherish those that made an impact before us. It is great people like Fred “Pop” Muller and William Dunton who have fascinating stories about their early days of Arlington Heights. These stories capture who we are as a community and where we are headed in the future.
The Arlington Heights Historical Museum is a gathering center for families to meet and here stories of great people who paved the way for us. It was 60 years ago when Village residents decided to get to together to preserve the history of Arlington Heights. Thankfully these great people recognized the importance in preserving our history. Celebrating this momentous anniversary, The Arlington Heights Historical Museum has many different activities for families to enjoy.
