Moment in time
The home of George and Alice Urlin, two of the Grandview area's earliest residents, was located on the hill near Goodale Boulevard. It was razed to provide the site of the current Summit Chase tower. Mr. Urlin and several other early pioneers purchased the land on the bluff above what would become Goodale Boulevard with the intent of establishing a small community. He lived in a farmhouse on the land while his mansion was constructed. When he moved into the new home, he allowed a group of horseback riders to use the farmhouse for a new club they established, called the Bit and Bridle Club. The members of this club later founded the Arlington Country Club, later called the Aladdin Country Club, in Marble Cliff. Mr. Urlin and his colleagues laid out the plans for what would ultimately become Grandview Heights. Note the cows resting in the field in the foreground, which is near what is now Goodale Boulevard.
