Adding Arlington to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

In addition, we also found mention of Arlington elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the Business Atlas and Shippers' Guide (1895).

Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of New York's counties, including Dutchess, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Arlington - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Arlington) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Arlington. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Arlington

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Arlington. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.6956, Longitude: -73.8967    
<4>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
