The Historic Fielder House is quite significant in Arlington's history because this mansion was among the first brick structures that had electricity, indoor plumbing and central heating installed. The house with its two stories belonged to a lawyer and after its opening as a museum in 1980 the place has been the historical archive of Arlington's background.

You can look around in the house and see the various documents and artifacts however you have to call ahead before your visit.
