WPA Walking Tour – Whittemore-Robbins Mansion

To count down the days to the end of summer, I will be taking you on a virtual walking tour of Arlington–the same one outlined in 1937’s The WPA Guide to Massachusetts. Each entry will include an excerpt from the book about each site visited. Hopefully this will give us a little insight as to how things have changed in the past 73 years. A little bit of backtracking brings us to our eleventh stop.

“The Whittemore-Robbins Mansion, behind the library, is a Federal

three-story building with a hip roof, a cupola or watch-tower, and four chimneys.”
