Sam T. Wilson Public Library
The Arlington Branch Library was renamed by the Arlington Library Board as the Sam T. Wilson Public Library in honor of the late, Mayor Sam T. Wilson.

The Town of Arlington wishes to honor one of its most outstanding citizens for his lifelong dedication to the community and its citizens.

We recognize the many contributions Mayor Sam T. Wilson made to the Town of Arlington, in addition to his terms as mayor from 1970 to 1986.

We acknowledge Mayor Sam's service and dedication to his country as a decorated veteran of World War II, and Whereas, we are proud that he remained in Arlington to continue to run the general store, S.Y. Wilson's General Merchandise, started by his grandfather in 1893.
