Arva is located just north of London at the intersection of Provincial Highway 4 (Richmond Street) and Medway Road (7th Concession). While it is not located within the formal boundaries of the City of London many individuals who work in London reside in Arva, and vice versa.
The community is the home of Medway High School, Centennial Central Public Dual Track School, Tamarak tree farm, Weldon Park, the Arva Flour Mill, a consignment store, a furniture store, a sewing store/quilting shop, a tack shop, a post office, and two churches, as well as personalities such as the current mayor of the City of London.
Arva is located on a pond (known as "the mill pond") on Medway Creek. There is also a forest known as the sanctuary (in St. John's Estates); the bush runs along the creek and goes down in to a camp site that at one time was quite popular.
A person living in Arva, and who has been for an extensive amount of time, is considered an Arvite. (http://neighbourgoodguide.ca)
In the 19th century Arva was a critical rest stop on the Underground Railroad, and home to several homes constructed as part of the Railroad.
Arva Flour Mills, in Arva, Ontario, on the banks of the Medway Creek, is Canada's oldest continuously operating water powered flour mill and perhaps the oldest in North America. (http://www.arvaflourmill.com)
