THE NEWEST ADDITION TO MILLER PARK

Thanks to all who participated in our May 7th dedication celebration at Miller Park!

This carriage step is an original historic artifact from the Miller farm. A large portion of this farmland was purchased by King & Ben Thompson in 1913 in order to develop Upper Arlington. Learn more about the step, the Miller family, and the pavers that frame the step from the permanent display sign at Miller Park.
