The City of Birmingham invites citizens to attend “Christmas at Arlington”, an annual event sponsored by the Arlington Historical Association (AHA) with free admission to the house and grounds.
This Birmingham Christmas tradition is a great way to kick off the holiday season. Visitors are invited to “step back in time” as local decorators adorn rooms of this historic house in seasonal period décor. Please make plans to visit Arlington December 2nd with your family and enjoy refreshments, entertainment and children’s activities.
This year the AHA is proud to host the newly crowned Miss Alabama, Brianna Burrell, who will greet visitors, pose for photos and sing.
