Arlington was originally called Bell Creek (after nearby Bell Creek) and under the latter name was platted in 1869 when the Sioux City and Pacific Railroad was extended to that point. Due to similarity in name with another place in Nebraska, Bell Creek was renamed Arlington, after the city of Arlington, Virginia, in 1882. Arlington was home to the Marshall Nurseries, an internationally acclaimed nursery credited with inventing the fraxinus pennsylvanica tree species, one of the most common green ash trees planted in the United States of America. Recent history includes the accidental damage to the north wall of the post office.
Arlington is located at (41.454244, -96.357246).
