After several years of planning by a dedicated task force of community volunteers, civic groups and City representatives, in 2018 Upper Arlington celebrated its 100th anniversary in style.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF UPPER ARLINGTON

One cannot discuss the history of Upper Arlington without beginning at the Miller Farm, purchased in 1859 by Dr. Henry Miller and his wife, Almeda. The Millers, affluent and civic-minded, relocated from the heart of Columbus to a country estate overlooking the Scioto River as a promise to their son James—if he recovered from typhoid fever, they would buy him anything he desired. The son only wanted a farm.

Ten years later, James T. Miller married Esther Everitt in 1869, his parents returned to downtown Columbus and the newlyweds took over the farm, raising their eight children over the next three decades. By 1913, the immaculate 900-acre estate and 22-bedroom mansion had become a burden to maintain, requiring dozens of hired hands who also needed housing. So, James sought a solution, asking his physician, Dr. J.A. Van Fossen, for recommendations. Dr. Fossen knew the perfect buyer—King Thompson.

King Thompson, a Georgetown, Ohio native, moved to Columbus in 1897 to study at The Ohio State University, leaving home with nothing but a horse and wagon. In the following years, he was joined by his younger brother, Ben, and the two started the King Thompson Company, helping transform neighborhoods that included parts of Clintonville, Beechwold and Grandview. After Dr. Van Fossen’s introduction, the Thompsons made a deal to purchase 840 acres from James T. Miller on Christmas Eve, 1913.

King Thompson quickly began laying the groundwork for his vision of transforming the rolling, partly wooded farmland into 2,500 lots. He hired architect William Pitkin, Jr. of Rochester, New York, whose design respected the natural contours of the land, creating open spaces and wide streets. No provisions were made for industrial sites—only a few acres for offices and retail shops. And in August of 1914, a team of horses cut a new street north from Fifth Avenue, leading into recently harvested fields. Over the next couple years, the Scioto

Country Club and a half-dozen new homes were built. The King Thompson Company, started marketing the new subdivision as the Country Club District—a nod to the development in Kansas City upon which it was based, “giving opportunity for spacious grounds for permanently protected homes, surrounded with ample space for air and sunshine.” But the start of Upper Arlington was not without struggles.

On June 18, 1916, a presidential decree gave Ohio Governor Frank Willis authority to seize a site where Ohio National Guardsmen could set up base and train for the possibility that more of the Mexican Revolution would cross into the United States. Governor Willis thought the Country Club District was the perfect spot for Ohio’s National Guardsmen, based on the high ground, easy drainage and ready access to Columbus. Camp Willis was built with commandeered lumber from future homes, the area was pitted with latrines and incoming trucks destroyed freshly grated streets. After three months of training, the soldiers were declared ready and Camp Willis was vacated on September 9, 1916. Federal and state officials quickly began to fight over the repayment of the $200,000 that had been spent on the construction of Camp Willis. King Thompson Company’s exact losses were not recorded, but roads were damaged, sewer and gas lines destroyed, and King Thompson eventually collected about half of what he was owed—$46,000. But the brothers cut their losses, pressed forward and a year after the soldiers’ departure, more than 50 houses were either occupied or under construction.

The Thompson brothers understood their vision required more than houses, streets and sewer systems. The community needed a form of government. On March 20, 1918, the Village of Upper Arlington was officially incorporated. In June, the 200 residents elected their first leaders under a mayor-council form of government. James T. Miller, owner of the Miller Farm, was elected the first mayor, along with a treasurer, clerk, six commissioners and a health officer. With adoption of a village charter in 1919, the form of government transitioned to a commission.

Upper Arlington’s government quickly started taking shape. The Upper Arlington Commission appointed a building inspector in 1925, and formed a Board of Zoning and Planning in 1927 to respond to residents’ requests for zoning variances. These new additions upheld the Thompsons’ vision, regulating height of buildings, construction and open spaces.

Upper Arlington became a city in 1941, once its population exceeded 5,000. The population almost doubled again in the next decade. In 1956, citizens voted to amend the City Charter, adopting a council-manager form of government—which remains in place today—with the first two women elected to serve on a seven-member City Council. By 1970, Upper Arlington was home to approximately 39,000 residents, peaking at about 42,000 by 1976.

As the community grew, so did its safety forces. The commission established its first police force in 1921, hiring one day and two nighttime officers. Ten years later, the village bought its first two police cruisers. A year after the police force was established, a resolution was passed to pay the City of Columbus $250 per run for fire protection. In 1929, residents approved a plan to build a municipal building at 2095 Arlington Avenue, to house village officials, police and an independent Fire Division—by 1972, this facility was transformed to Fire Station 71, while other municipal functions moved to 3600 Tremont Road, upon completion of the Municipal Services Center. Today—with 49 police officers and 53 fire/EMS personnel—Upper Arlington’s safety services do more than just protect. Creating programs such as STAY UA, Safety Town and I Am Fine, they assist and educate residents with a wealth of safety considerations.

As the decades passed, Upper Arlington grew not only in population, but also its physical size. In 1954 and 1955, the two largest parcels were annexed, nearly doubling the City’s land mass. While growth represented progress, City leaders understood it should be a thoughtful process, creating the City’s first Master Plan in 1962. A key element of this Master Plan was a recommendation that the population should not exceed 45,000, to preserve its “distinctive identity.”

With few opportunities remaining to expand the city’s footprint and a population experiencing a slight decline, 40 years on the City embarked on a major Master Plan update process, with the new plan adopted in 2001. With just five percent of the land zoned for commercial use, finding ways to maximize the business districts’ revenue generating potential were a critical priority. The Master Plan provided the framework for encouraging commercial redevelopment that would meet city goals, while also preserving and enhancing the community’s beloved residential nature. Per a directive of the 2001 Master Plan, the document was revisited after 10 years, with an updated version completed in 2013. In recent years, the city has experienced significant transformations in the Lane Avenue and Kingsdale commercial districts—while managing to respect and preserve surrounding neighborhoods—expanding amenities for residents and growing critical revenue sources to support the schools and the city.

As Upper Arlington neared the milestone of its first century, it was increasingly clear that important infrastructure, such as roads, water and sewer lines, and public facilities, were aging and falling into disrepair. In November 2014, voters approved an income tax increase of 1/2%, with the resulting revenues dedicated to addressing the backlog of capital needs. The city expanded its Capital improvement Program from seven to 10 years, with $113 million in investments identified within the first plan, setting the community back on a sustainable path for maintenance and replacements. In the first four years of implementation, more than $42 million has been reinvested, with noticeable results. Tremont Road best represents this shift in focus, transformed in 2015 and 2016 into a tree-lined, pedestrian and bicycle-friendly main street worthy of our community.

As envisioned by the Thompson brothers, open spaces and parks have been a vital component of the community throughout its history. In 1921, tennis courts and playground equipment were opened to the public at Miller Park. In 1928, the first swimming pool opened its doors, at a reported cost of $16,500. Growth of the parks system was sporadic during the first 50 years. Northam Park was created in 1946, with the original Tremont Pool built in 1955. Thompson Park (formally Lane Road Park) was created in 1960, on acreage that that had been purchased by the Board of Education for a proposed second high school. And in 1973, the City purchased farmland from Benn Blinn along Kioka Avenue that became Fancyburg Park, named after his wife’s pet name for Upper Arlington. Most recently, in 2010 the City created Sunny 95 Park, thanks to a gift/purchase agreement with a neighboring radio station of the same name. Subsequently, in 2011 the City accepted a gift of the Amelita Mirolo Barn rental facility at the park, the result of a signature fundraising effort of the Upper Arlington Community Foundation. Today, as we prepare for the next century, the City’s Parks & Recreation Department is charting its roadmap for the coming decades, through a comprehensive planning process.

One hundred years on, this community of approximately 34,000 residents has much to celebrate. Location, excellent schools, beautiful neighborhoods, a unique sense of community and pride, and an exquisite natural environment. The work of the past decade to plan for the next century has set us on an exciting path for continued success that is sure reflect the sentiments and hopes of our founding fathers.

CENTENNIAL LEGACY PROJECTS
Centennial Plaza

CENTENNIAL PLAZA

Northam Park is the home to a community pool, playground and reading garden, clay tennis courts, numerous sports fields, the main library branch and two schools, while serving as the community’s gathering place for two signature events—the Fourth of July Festival and Fireworks, and the Upper Arlington Labor Day Arts Festival. The Centennial Task Force felt strongly that the park entry was the best location for a signature Legacy Project—something easily accessible that would commemorate our 100th birthday in a tasteful and fitting way—and the team set about turning this idea into reality.

The Centennial Plaza provides an inviting gathering space for residents, most notably defined by three bronze bear sculptures that are the work of a local artist, Alan Hamwi—who actually grew up in UA. The bears are sited on a rubberized play surface, allowing children to interact with the artworks. Surrounding the sculptures is seating and an extension of the park entry pillars and trelliswork.

This part of the Legacy Project was made possible in large part thanks to the support of the following organizations:

  • Upper Arlington Rotary Club
  • Upper Arlington Community Foundation
  • Upper Arlington Civic Association
  • Kiwanis Club of Northwest Columbus

THE BEARS

The artist and sculptor of the three bronze bears is Alan Hamwi. Alan, 62, is an Upper Arlington native who has been sculpting since he was a teenager.

Alan has many statues on display throughout central Ohio to include Harold Cooper at Huntington Park and animals at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. But this project is special to Alan because Upper Arlington is where he spent most of his life, growing up as a kid and then raising his children in this community.

Bronze is Alan’s specialty and the medium he prefers to use when sculpting because of its history an permanence.

Alan first starts by making models of the sculptures and then carving the sculptures out of styrofoam. After the carving process, Alan covers the styrofoam in clay and shapes the clay to the exact version of what the sculpture will look like. After each bear (or mold) has been sculpted in clay, Alan drove them to Florida to have them cast in bronze.

CNT History Walk

CENTENNIAL HISTORY WALK

The History Walk is located along the main pedestrian walkway into the park from Tremont Road. A series of 10 markers (and one information marker about the walk) provide a snapshot of Upper Arlington’s first 100 years—the community’s early days and the people, institutions and amenities that set us apart. In conjunction with installation of the History Walk, the City made improvements to the walkway, adding trees and planting beds that compliment the beautiful markers.

The History Walk has been made possible thanks to the support of the following:

  • The Martin Peter & Marjorie Garvin Sayers Family: Daniel Garvin Sayers, Stephen Putnam Sayers, Julia Sayers Bolton, Elaine Sayers Buck
  • The Barney Family
  • The Crane Family: In memory of Robert S. Crane, Jr.
  • The Yassenoff Family
  • The Patton Family: In memory of Mary Louise & Bob Patton
  • Northwest EyeCare Professionals: Douglas, Deborah & Quinlan Bosner
  • The Upper Arlington Education Foundation & Upper Arlington Library Board
  • The Greg Guy & Lisa Ingram Family: Caitlyn, Andrew, Jacob & Ryan
  • The Gudenkauf and Gehring Families
  • E. Ann Gabriel: In memory of Ann R. & M. Leonard Gabriel and Joanne B. & Jack O. Woodruff
  • The Jody & Wally Phillips Family: Diane Phillips Albrecht, Debbie Phillips Bower, John Wallace Phillips and Cindy Phillips Close
CNT Time Capsule

TIME CAPSULE

No centennial is complete without a time capsule to commemorate the year’s celebrations for a future generation to discover. Over the year, the Centennial Task Force collected items that represent our community, our residents and the year 2018. The time capsule was sealed at the 2019 State of the City Address, officially ending the Centennial Celebrations. The Centennial Time Capsule is located at the Municipal Services Center, 3600 Tremont Road.
Centennial Logo

THE CENTENNIAL LOGO

An early goal of the Centennial planning group was to create a logo that would resonate with citizens. Jenny Ledman—a resident and graphic designer—kindly agreed to design the Centennial logo as a gift to the community.

In the fall of 2015, residents were invited to help identify the visual components of existing community logos that best represent UA, and to consider logos used for other cities’ special celebrations. From this insight, Jenny created a design that captures the pride and spirit of Upper Arlington.

The Centennial logo is built around UA’s Golden Bear, with a strong and simple color palette of black and gold, prominent text, a burst of fireworks in deference to UA’s most popular community celebration—the Fourth of July—and featuring the tagline “A Cherished Past | A Golden Future.”

A Cherished Past A Golden Future

A CHERISHED PAST, A GOLDEN FUTURE

A lot has happened in 30 years, since a history of Upper Arlington was last memorialized in a book for the community. Keeping with the tradition of capturing the progression of our community, the Historical Society–with the assistance of the Upper Arlington Library– embarked on the task of researching and writing a new historical celebration of our community. A Cherished Past, A Golden Future is fresh look at the events that have shaped Upper Arlington for the past one hundred years in a readable narrative, accompanied by vivid photos to describe the land, the people and the vision behind the community we know today.

The Centennial Magazine

The Centennial

The Centennial Task Force captured within the pages of The Centennial the essence of what makes Upper Arlington a unique and wonderful place to call home. This “go to” coffee table publication highlights the actionable projects and events, as well as exciting interviews and articles detailing what makes Upper Arlington a reason why  generations of families continue to call this community home.

CENTENNIAL HERITAGE TREES

The Centennial Heritage Tree project was conceived by a group of residents who have taken their love of trees and our natural environment to the next step by volunteering to serve on the City Tree Commission.

A call was put out to the community to nominate trees for inclusion on a Centennial Tree Registry. Once nominated, these trees were personally inspected by members of the Commission and City Staff to confirm they that they had indeed lived long enough to bear witness to the founding of Upper Arlington. The trees were then added to the registry and residents were invited to pickup their very own Centennial Heritage tree yard sign to place in their yards.

The response to this opportunity was tremendous. More than 220 trees were submitted and inspected for this process, and I understand that nominations continue to trickle in. Please note, this project has now come to a close, with all the yard signs distributed and the registry complete.

When the driveway was relocated 15 years ago, care was taken to lay brick on sand rather than asphalt or cement on a large section of the new driveway to allow for rain water to reach the tree's roots. It's close to 140 years old and we certainly hope it will reach 200 and maybe be around for UA's bicentennial.
An American beech, back right side yard if facing the house, can be seen above the roof line and thru a see-thru fence, it's believed to be close to 132 years old and his canopy, even with proper thinning and pruning, is so dense that even with torrential rains it is difficult to get wet if you are under it. Many al fresco dinners had been witness by this majestic tree.
