Upper Arlington Origins

Upper Arlington was founded by brothers King and Ben Thompson, who in 1913 purchased the 840 acres of farmland that was to become Upper Arlington.

Originally intended as a residential community to be named the “Country Club District,” the area became known as Upper Arlington after Arlington, its neighbor to the south presently called Marble Cliff.

A Garden City-style plan provided by prominent landscape architect William Pitkin Jr., laid out tree-lined streets following the contours of the land. Development was paused briefly in 1916 when the National Guard used the area as a training camp, but soon resumed.

In 1918, Upper Arlington was incorporated as a village, population 200. The Mallway business district, built in the 1920s, added office and retail space along Arlington Avenue.

The village became a city in 1941 and grew in population as it annexed surrounding land, mostly through the late 1940s to 1960.
