A Denver, Colorado-originating promoter named H. B. Chamberlain bought 2,000 acres of land from a Chicago financier named Tom Hurley and Robert McCart. He attempted to develop Arlington Heights, but a hotel he built, Ye Arlington Inn, burned in 1894 and he died in a bicycle accident in London. Arlington Heights was developed after the United States moved military personnel in the surrounding area in World War I.
