The name of the town was an unintentional misspelling by the U.S. Postal Service in 1882 of the city’s intended name, taken from Arad Thompson, the son of the town founder and first postmaster Stephen Tuttle Thompson. Two other names for the town were sent to the Postal Service for consideration: “Ink” and “Bird”. Arab has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names. The Arab Alabama Historic Village
located in Arab City Park  is a tribute to the pioneer people who settled and built the area.  The City of Arab and the Arab Historical Society continue to develop the village which has 10 buildings furnished with items through the 1940’s and portrays a rural community of that time.  The buildings are open March-October on Thursdays and Fridays from 10 am to 3 pm and Saturday from 1 pm to 4 pm. Arab Alabama City Park
has several special events throughout the year; Back When Day in April, Arab Community Fair in September and Santa in the Park the Friday after Thanksgiving.   On November 11th, 2000 a community veterans memorial was dedicated at the park entrance.  The memorial is a tribute to the men and women of this community who served their country.  The memorial was erected by the city government to honor all veterans and  especially in memory of those who gave their all.    The black marble monument includes bronze plaques commemorating each branch of service.
