The Arlington Heights Historical Museum will open a new exhibit next month entitled "A Pop of Local Flavor: The Sweet Story of Arlington Club," in the Heritage Gallery of the Arlington Heights Historical Museum, 110 W. Fremont St.

The exhibit will explore the 145-year history of soda pop in Arlington Heights, following growth of production through the story of F.W. Muller, the man behind what we now know of as the Arlington Club Beverage Company. Learn about how the introduction and creation of this fizzy drink had a large impact on Arlington Heights and the Chicago area.

A reception will be held at the opening, from opening 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 1. There will be light refreshments, soda tastings and a chance to be one of the first to see the new exhibit. The event is free, but donations for the Arlington Heights Historical Museum are always welcome.
