Witness each step in the founding of the Village of Upper Arlington, and the later incorporation of the City of Upper Arlington, from the development of the Charter Commission to the framing of the Village Charter and its submission to voters. The historic Record of Proceedings of the Village (City) of Upper Arlington, Ohio, begins in June 1918, as members of our community petitioned the Ohio Secretary of State to incorporate the Village of Upper Arlington. The full transcript of this petition, the petitioners' names, and the creation of our Village Charter are just the first of many historical highlights in these valuable primary sources.
In the summer of 2011, the library formed a partnership with the City of Upper Arlington to digitally preserve and present the original minutes of the Village Commission and City Council. The library has digitized the first volumes of these historic documents, and new volumes will be placed online as they are completed.
