Hilliard History

The original Hilliard area was formed in 1853 when Piqua resident John Reed Hilliard platted farmland purchased in western Franklin County. Known as “Hiliard’s Station” originally, the land was purchased in anticipation of the growth of the new Columbus, Piqua, and Indiana Railroad, which passed through the farmland.

While the area's economy was initially dominated by farming, the proximity of the railroad brought commercial and industrial success. In 1854, the word “Station” was dropped from the town's name and a post office was established. The Village of Hilliard was established in 1869 with a population of only 280 residents.

Residential development proceeded slowly through the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, but the pace of growth accelerated dramatically during the 1950’s and 1960’s after construction of three large subdivisions and connection to Columbus sewer and water systems. The Village of Hilliard, 1950 population of 610, achieved the status of a city in 1960 with a population of 5,633.
