In March of 1918, James Kennedy Dunlap and his wife, Nellie (Hayes), lived at 1700 Arlington Avenue. Nellie was active in the Arlington Red Cross Unit, which was formed August 19, 1918. Ladies of Upper Arlington were encouraged to join, and the group assembled weekly to contribute to the war effort, sewing hospital clothes, pillow cases, and towels. Mr. Dunlap was one of the participating residents in the War Gardens, producing crops of potatoes, corn, and beans. J. K. Dunlap's mother-in-law, Mrs. Helen W. Hayes, also resided with the couple at 1700 Arlington Avenue. The Dunlaps eventually moved to Dayton, Ohio, where Mr. Dunlap had accepted a position with a brokerage firm. The George S. Hershey family moved into the house at 1700 Arlington Avenue after the Dunlap family vacated the residence.
