Centennial Plaza and the History Walk

On July 4, 2018, in honor of our city's centennial celebration, Upper Arlington dedicated the Centennial Plaza and History Walk at Northam Park. After years of planning and soliciting private funding, the Centennial Task Force realized their vision of creating a lasting memorial to this historic year.

The Upper Arlington Historical Society was an integral part of creating the 11-sign History Walk, through which visitors can learn basic facts about our community's beginnings.
