Archibald Hunter Arrington (13 November 1809 – 20 July 1872) was a U.S. Congressman from North Carolina from 1841 to 1845 and a member of the Confederate Congress during the American Civil War.

Born near Nashville, North Carolina in 1809, Arrington attended a local academy in Hilliardston and then Louisburg College. Although he studied law, he was also a significant landowner and planter.

In 1840, Arrington was elected as a Democrat to the U.S. House; he served for two terms, in the 27th and 28th Congresses. (March 4, 1841 – March 3, 1845) He sought re-election in 1844, but was defeated and failed to gain a third term.

After the Civil War, Arrington was a delegate to the Union National Convention at Philadelphia in 1866, the chairman of the court of common pleas and quarter sessions for Nash
