Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Arlington Historical Society's Fielder House Museum

About this Partner

Arlington Historical Society presents photographs from its World War II collection as well as early images of Arlington's development including major construction projects for General Motors, Six Flags Mall, and Arlington Stadium.

The Fielder House, a two-story community landmark, was built in 1914 and is one of the earliest brick homes in Arlington. It belonged to James Fielder, Sr., a successful lawyer, farmer, philanthropist, and banker and is now preserved as a museum with the purpose of collecting, preserving, and interpreting local and county historical materials. The galleries at the Fielder House are used primarily to exhibit themes and topics relating to the history of Arlington and its surrounding communities.
