William Dunton was the founder of our community of Arlington Heights, Illinois in 1854. This statue, commemorating him, was made recently by a local artist and proudly stands in a small park in our downtown area. When I was teaching 3rd grade, we studied Arlington Heights as one of our social studies units. I hope my former students remember that learning when they pass by this statue!
