Things to Do in Arlington This Weekend: Check Out Arlington Square




 
Welcome to Memphis Revealed where we will take you on a tour of all the hidden gems of the Memphis area. In this episode, we are going to explore Arlington.

Arlington was founded in the 1830s by the nephew of President Andrew Jackson. Today, you can still visit many of the same structures that helped the town get its start. The center of the Depot Square showcases the original train depot responsible for the growth of Arlington.
 
Join us as we show you some of the historic sites Arlington has to offer.
 
Stop 1: Arlington Post Office
 
The first stop on our tour is The Arlington Post Office. The post office was assigned its first Post Master in 1866. The post office moved around some over the centuries, but in 1989 the building was dedicated and moved to the Arlington Square. It proudly displays postal memorabilia and honors community veterans. If you are in the area exploring the Arlington Depot Square, peak in the windows of the old post office.
 
Stop 2: Original Blacksmith Shop
 
Another spot to visit for a taste of the past is the Original Blacksmith Shop. It was run until 1971! Now, you can visit a reconstructed version as the original build collapsed in 1991. You can still see the antique blacksmith equipment and original tools.
 
Stop 3: S.Y. Wilson
 
You can’t tour Arlington without checking out S.Y. Wilson. S.Y. Wilson has been a family-operated community staple for over 100 years! Inside you will find everything from ice cream to kayaks. My favorite part of stopping in S.Y. Wilson is catching up with Raylin, the family dog.
