The Upper Arlington Historical Society will host its annual walking tour through Old Arlington on Saturday, Nov. 29.

The tour leaves from Miller Park library, 1901 Arlington Ave., at 10 a.m. and will last about an hour and a half.

The tour is sponsored by and led by Kate Matheny, former director of Columbus Landmarks and longtime Upper Arlington resident.

In addition to some colorful stories of early residents, the tour will include a discussion of the design philosophy behind the city's original planned development and its architectural significance as well as the City Beautiful Movement of early 20th century revival-style architecture.

While walking past homes, participants will learn about the city planning principles employed by the original Pitkin Plan. Participants will also learn about architectural styles, building materials, landscape and street patterns that are still evident in the neighborhood today.

Registration is requested but not required, and may be made by calling the society at (614) 470-2610.
