In 1913, the Thompson brothers had a vision for a unique country club district on a vast stretch of undeveloped farmland along the banks of the Scioto River just five miles northwest of Columbus. They envisioned a Garden City where people of prosperity and influence could find a refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life without being to far outside of the city. While much has changed since the city was founded, somethings have not and the heart of Columbus is still bustling with excitement, and Upper Arlington remains just minutes from it all.
