The Village is the 12th largest municipality in Illinois and a unique blend of old and new. Redevelopment efforts in the Downtown and other shopping areas have added vibrancy and interest, making Arlington Heights an attractive destination for homebuyers, shoppers, businesses and visitors.
Arlington Heights was founded in the mid 1800s by Asa Dunton, a Yankee stonecutter. Asa’s son William Dunton was the first homeowner of this farming community, which was originally called the “Town of Dunton.” The original train depot served as a catalyst for Arlington Heights’ growth. The train depot was a great convenience for nearby farmers who used the railroad to transport their goods. The depot became a central gathering place for the community and prompted development of a Downtown as more people settled in Arlington Heights.
