1. Hume School Marker
Inscription.  The Hume School was built in 1891. The Queen Anne style building was designed by B. Stanley Simmons, an area architect. The school was named for Frank Hume, a local civic and business leader, who donated adjacent land for a playground. It was an active public school for 67 years, closing in 1958. The Arlington Historical Society, founded in 1956, led a successful community campaign to save the building for use as a local museum. In 1960, the Hume School was deeded to the Arlington Historical Society. The Hume School is a designated Arlington County Landmark and listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
