Hancock County

One of Hancock County’s earliest settlements, the signs on US 68 welcome you home to “Flag Village USA.” Originally called Hurdtown, it was laid out in 1844 by Robert Hurd, and then became known as Arlington (which he named for Arlington, VA). Community pride is strong in this village, and you’ll witness that firsthand at Castor Field as the local residents cheer for their beloved Red Devils.

The village is situated between Jenera and Mount Blanchard. It boasts a community pool and park, the Arlington Branch Library, and a host of places to eat! From donuts and pizza at Curly’s, to a burger at Cheeky Bear, back to Jack & Do’s for some more pizza, and then to Hull’s Trace for a glass of wine, the village is not lacking for options.
