From Produce To Horses
Arlington Heights was founded by William Dunton in the mid 1800’s and went by the name Dunton until it was incorporated in 1887 as Arlington Heights. The population stayed at or below 2,000 until the 1920’s, staying a mostly agricultural region. In 1927, the horse track was opened and brought spectators and growth to the area. By 1930, the population had doubled, coming in at 4,997 in the census.
The original grandstand was in place until 1985, when it burned in a fire. The track was rebuilt and opened again in 1989. Arlington Park Race Track hosts a Breeder’s Cup qualifying race annually, the Arlington Million and even hosted the Breeder’s Cup in 2002. Arlington Park is the largest local employer, with 4,500 employees reported in 2010.
