Arlington Heights: A Community Where History Meets Modern Style
If you’re looking for a community consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in Ft. Worth, Arlington Heights merits serious consideration. Its history can be seen in the charming historic homes on many of its residential streets and the red brick of Camp Bowie Boulevard. Residents are close to the best of Fort Worth’s many amenities, making Arlington Heights a popular area with families and young professionals alike.
Arlington Heights History
Arlington Heights’ roots reach back to the 1850s when it was part of Ft. Worth ranch land. There was some residential development in the 1890s. However, only a handful of homes had been built by the turn of the century. Development began in earnest in 1906 when Denver based developer H.B. Chamberlain bought 2,000 acres of land from two Chicago based financiers. It was dubbed the “Chamberlain Arlington Heights” and included a boulevard linking the land to downtown Fort Worth. Over 3,000 trees were transplanted in the neighborhood to make it more attractive. With World War I came real growth to Arlington Heights.
The land was bought and then donated to the U.S. Army for training. Throughout the war, thousands of troops trained there, with a peak population of over 30,000 men in 1917. Besides having its name on the main boulevard, Camp Bowie was vital to the Arlington Heights infrastructure. The army installed utilities, including sewer and electricity. Though the camp closed after the war ended, the remaining infrastructure spurred growth and development in the 1920s and 30s.
It was considered the fastest growing section of Fort Worth from 1920-1926. Today this historic area is known as the Hillcrest Addition or the Tremont Block. Home construction ran through the 1930s, was halted during World War II, and finished filing in by 1947. Its history can be seen in its architectural style. English Cottage style and Arts and Crafts bungalows dot the area. Camp Bowie Blvd. has retained its historic character.
The road was renamed in 1922 in honor of the World War I camp, and driving down it today is like taking a trip into the past. Many businesses along the boulevard have roots in the 1920s – 1940s.

The result of Arlington Heights’ 10-plus years of development is a range in architectural styles in its residences and commercial buildings. Being in high demand, developers have responded by building homes and multi-family complexes around the Arlington Heights area.
The center of this vibrant community remains mostly single-family homes, typically of a historical nature. Cottages there date back to the 20s and 30s. Home prices can be seen ranging from the mid-200s to the mid-600s. In addition to hardwood floors, walk-in closets, double sinks, and granite countertops, many homes feature front porches and spacious yards. Some historic areas of Arlington heights have guidelines in place to retain its character.
Over fifty homes are listed in the Tarrant County Historic Resources Survey. The demolition of existing structures original to the site requires review by the Historic and Cultural Landmarks Commission before any permits are issued. Several neighborhood associations act as liaisons between residents and the City of Fort Worth. Additionally, these associations host activities throughout the year.
The Arlington Heights Neighborhood Association hosts a parade each year and Yard of the Month Awards. It also has a Facebook page and a newsletter for residents.
Homebuyers with children will find quality education a common theme. The public North Hi Mount elementary has been featured as one of Fort Worth’s best schools. School-aged children are in the Fort Worth Independent School District. Schools for Arlington Heights children include:
