Marble Cliff is a small village of 175 acres located south of W. Fifth Avenue, between the cities of Grandview Heights and Upper Arlington, and about 3 miles northwest of downtown Columbus. It was one of the first suburbs of Columbus, settled as a community in 1890, and incorporated as a Village in 1901. Because it is enclosed between surrounding cities and natural barriers, there is little probability that Marble Cliff will grow in area, ensuring its peaceful quaintness.
Tree-lined streets, charming homes, churches, and business offices characterize the Village of Marble Cliff. Approximately 50 businesses are located within the community. Described as an “inner-ring suburb” and a “face-to-face-community,” the Village has a strong pulse of activity.
