History

History

In 1852, John Reed Hilliard bought ten acres and originally this area became known as Hilliard’s Station. The town grew around the railroad route of the Piqua and Indiana Railroad station, which bisected the former Hilliard farmland. Until the mid 20th century, the railroad station and Main Street were the town center. In 1854, a post office was established in Hilliard’s Station and the word Station was dropped from the town name. The Village of Hilliard became incorporated on July 13, 1869 with a population of 280 residents. In 1886 the first railroad station was located on the north side of the tracks, west of Main Street, and remained there until 1962 when all railroad services ceased. The original train station has been restored and remains in Hilliard’s historical Weaver Park.

The construction of three large residential subdivisions in the 1950’s brought explosive growth to Hilliard. The connection to the Columbus regional sewer and water systems in the 1960’s opened up the area to development. The Village of Hilliard gained city status officially from the Secretary of State of Ohio, by attaining a population of 5,633 on December 12, 1960. With the completion of the I-270 outerbelt in the 1980’s, a second wave of explosive growth came to the area. Land uses in Hilliard continue to be a mix of residential and commercial development. “Hilliard is a place for everyone” is more than just a slogan in this community, it is the philosophy that has guided the district during this growth.

In contrast to all the new growth is the revitalization of Old Hilliard, which helps remind us of days gone by. A rich heritage of residential structures and architectural styles can be found in the historic district along Norwich Street. The City of Hilliard looks towards the future by continuing its economic development efforts with commercial growth while retaining the charm of its historic district and continuing to maintain the friendly atmosphere that make Hilliard a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
