Originally consisting of the town of Trilby and the suburb around Whitmer High School, Toledo annexed this district in the 1960s. Until the 19th century, the area included Ottawa and Potawatami communities, and Tremainsville Road once served as an Indian trail. In 1795, the Treaty of Greenville blocked Northwest Ohio from the settlement, but pioneers ignored that in their western migration. Settlers came in 1835, building a small schoolhouse in the 1840s. During the Toledo War of 1835, soldiers from Ohio and Michigan stalked each other through the swamp, sent by state governors over a land dispute. Previous surveys were unclear which state-owned the boggy territory. This contested land contained what would later be Whitmer-Trilby. Ohio finally won jurisdiction of this land in an agreement, giving Michigan the Upper Peninsula. Museums in the vicinity include the Toledo Firefighters Museum, and the Toledo Museum of Art lies about six miles to the south.

Residents of the Whitmer-Trilby neighborhood appreciate the low cost of living. It costs 12 percent less than the national average to live here, one percent less than the average Toledo neighborhood.

When at a local pub, anticipate paying about $3 for a domestic beer and another $11.50 for a mid-priced meal.
