The founders of Upper Arlington were King and Ben Thompson, who purchased the original 840 acres of land in 1913. They envisioned an idealistic residential community for Columbus-choosing a location of rolling, partly wooded land. By 1917 the area became known as Upper Arlington. The present village of Marble Cliff, located south of Upper Arlington, was named Arlington during that time, and led to this logical term which gained popularity. In 1918, Upper Arlington became incorporated with a population of 20.

The Pitkin Plan, spearheaded by a prominent architect of the same name, encouraged the growth of Upper Arlington to develop differently from the rigid geometrical designs of Columbus. The acreage was divided into lots that stretched along curving streets, with an abundance of trees planted, giving Old Arlington its distinct appearance of today. These original 840 acres encompass the Upper Arlington Historic District.

By 1939, the population had reached 3,059, at which time growth was temporarily halted by events of World War II. At the end of the war, returning servicemen and their families flocked to suburban areas and, by 1950, Upper Arlington had over 9,000 residents. Steady growth over the ensuing decades raised the population to over 38,000 by 1970, the City’s peak. As the population grew, Upper Arlington was enlarged, annexing land to the north and reaching today’s current boundaries 9.67 square miles.

The village became the City of Upper Arlington in 1941 and was chartered in 1956 with a council-manager government system. Upper Arlington has, from its earliest days, been blessed by people who care about the community and in recognition of this, the Ohio Magazine in 1996 designated Upper Arlington as “Central Ohio’s Premier Community.” Despite the greatly expanded population, neighborhoods band together for many causes-from 4th of July parades, to Labor Day Festival and the Tour of Historic Homes.
