Since its beginnings in the mid-1800s as a stop along the Piqua and Indiana Railroad, Hilliard [1] has always been a point of connection for the people of western Franklin County. For nearly 100 years, it was the place where farmers brought agricultural products to ship. Pieces of history dominated by a closely linked relationship with the railroad and farming are still evident today. This is particularly true in Old Hilliard, where there is a quaint look and feel of historic buildings, the Franklin County Fairgrounds, and a development pattern oriented around the rail line.

The orientation of the street grid in Old Hilliard, from northwest to southeast, was shaped around the railroad, and was the dominant development pattern for more than 100 years. The decline of the railroads and the construction of Interstate 270 in the 1960s and 1970s changed the development framework for the area. Growth shifted away from Old Hilliard and towards Interstate 270 to align with the rapidly expanding highway system, resulting in Cemetery Road becoming the primary commercial center. This shift signaled Hilliard's transition from an agricultural community to a Columbus outerbelt suburb.

The transition continued as many of the rural farms disappeared with the housing boom that started in the mid 1980's and continued through the 1990's. Various factors, including the availability of cheap land, housing demand, the extension of public utilities, and the predominance of auto-oriented development have caused Hilliard to grow in a very rapid, sprawling, and disjointed manner.
