Columbus native William Sexton Brown was the original owner of one of the first homes built in Upper Arlington. His two-story brick home was located at 2010 West Devon Road and featured an enclosed sunroom and a detached garage. When the Norwester magazine profiled his family in 1918, Mr. Brown was chairman of the board of Brown Steel. He was also an active participant in the tennis and horseshoe pitching tournaments held in Upper Arlington. He was married to the former Miss Grace Cockins, and the couple lived on Devon Road with their daughter, Margaret. Margaret and her husband, Edgar Barnett, also became active members of the community.
