COLUMBUS NEIGHBORHOODS
New Albany

A pedestrian-friendly village square anchored by a library, restaurants, shops and offices, with signature distinctive white horse fences, the Village of New Albany was founded in 1837.

The village boasts a growing number of specialized medical practices. Other attractions include: The Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts which is home to the New Albany Symphony Orchestra, The Learning Community Campus, the New Albany Business Park, Bevelhymer Park, Swickard Woods, Thompson Road Park, and Wexner Community Parks.

In 1970 New Albany was much smaller than it is today, only consisting of a small part of Plain Township which did not even touch Columbus.

German Village

One of the nation’s early and most successful urban revitalization campaigns, this charming and vital neighborhood was once home to working-class German immigrants. Now its brick streets, beautiful gardens, and delightful architecture are hallmarks of one of the country’s most prestigious urban addresses. This program includes The Brewery District, Merion Village, and Schumacher Place.

Clintonville

The community of Clintonville developed as the center of Clinton Township, which was named for the U.S. Vice President George Clinton, as part of the land grants given to Continental Army soldiers in lieu of pensions in what used to be Wyandotte Indian territory.

The area served as a stop on the Underground Railroad.

By the early 1900s, downtown Columbus residents and professors from near-by Ohio State University had built summer homes in Clintonville, and the surrounding farmland was converted into housing developments shortly after the extension of the streetcar lines northward from Columbus.

A business district developed in Beechwold, separated by nearly a mile of residences from the Clintonville district to the south. Both communities were entirely part of Columbus by the 1950s, after it annexed most of Clinton Township.

Clintonville was once home to the Columbus’ first zoo which opened and closed in 1905 as well as the Olentangy Park amusement park.

The amusement park, which operated from 1880 to 1939, featured four roller coasters, including a rare looping coaster, a zoo, a dance pavilion, water slide, canoe rental for the Olentangy River. It was also home to the largest theatre in the country, as well as the largest swimming pool in the world at the time. One fixture of Olentangy Park that still lives on today is its carousel that is currently housed at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

The area also boosts Whetstone Park, which includes the popular Park of Roses, and three ravine parks located north of Ohio State’s campus.

Upper Arlington

The city of Upper Arlington began its life like so many suburbs. It was a large tract of farmland owned by the Miller family. Brothers Ben and King Thompson purchased 840 acres of the farmland to get The Upper Arlington Company underway in 1913. According to the book History of Upper Arlington by the History Committee of Upper Arlington (1977) the location was chosen for being on high ground compared to the rest of the inner ring of Columbus suburbs and sat west of the city with no factories – this meant the prevailing western winds would main that Upper Arlington could maintain clean, healthy air as compared to those communities near or east of Columbus’ predominantly coal-burning factories.

Today Upper Arlington is home to many of the area’s CEO’s, political figures, university professors and other leaders of Central Ohio. The original intent of the founders was to provide a bedroom community with high standards. While Upper Arlington has found it necessary to diversify with more professional industry and retail opportunities it does remain primarily a bedroom community catering to families in the middle to upper class of society.

Grandview Heights

In 1842, the present Grandview Heights area was divided into 12 plots, with county roads situated at the locations of Dublin Road, Olentangy River Road, and Fifth Avenue. The first school was established at the corner of Dublin and Grandview Avenue, was unofficially called Walcutt’s School, its designation was Franklin Township School.

In 1901, the entire area between the two rivers, and roughly King Avenue, became united as the Hamlet of Marble Cliff for the first and last time. The Grandview of today was formed by annexation after 1912, including some Northwest Boulevard tracts after 1920.

It’s downtown features the historic Bank Block which was one of the country’s first shopping centers, and the first strip shopping center in America that integrated parking into the design when was built in 1927. Today, the Bank Block is still popular and features a mix of restaurants, shops and a movie theatre.

Dublin

Dublin dates back to 1802 and began to flourish by 1810 when John Sells brought his family to the Ohio. John Shields, Sells’s partner, named the village after his birthplace of Dublin, Ireland.

In the 1970s, Dublin was transformed from a rural village into a suburban business center, due largely to the completion of the I-270 outerbelt and development of the Muirfield Village Golf Club and residential community.

Each year in late May or early June, the city hosts the Memorial Tournament, a stop on golf’s PGA Tour. Other annual events include the Fourth of July music event, a St. Patrick’s Day parade, and the Dublin Irish Festival help every August is one of the largest Irish festivals in the United States.

Early nineteenth-century architecture and dry limestone fences bordering its roads add to Historic Dublin’s heritage. Many of its original buildings are listed in the National Register of Historical Places.

Hilliard

Geographically, the Hilliard area is between Big Darby Creek on the west and the Scioto River on the east. Originally called Hilliard’s Station, the town grew around the railroad route of the Piqua and Indiana Railroad station, which bisected the former Hilliard farmland. The original train station has been restored and remains in Hilliard’s historical Weaver Park.

The construction of three large residential subdivisions in the 1950s brought explosive growth to Hilliard. The connection to the Columbus regional sewer and water systems in the 1960s opened up the area to development. The Village of Hilliard gained city status officially from the Secretary of State of Ohio, by attaining a population of 5,633 on December 12, 1960. With the completion of the I-270 outerbelt in the 1980s, a second wave of explosive growth came to the area.

Gahanna

Known as the “Herb Capital of Ohio,” Gahanna was founded along the Big Walnut Creek in 1849; the name Gahanna is derived from a Native American word for three creeks joining into one and is the former name of the Big Walnut Creek.

Gahanna offers all of the sights and sounds of nostalgic Americana. Today, visitors can take a paddleboat ride down the meandering Big Walnut Creek, explore yesteryear in 16 historic landmarks, and stop by Historic Olde Gahanna.

In 2004, Gahanna’s new Creekside Gahanna redevelopment and park extension project began, making way for everything from public spaces and restaurants to residences and office space. As of late 2007, the project businesses began to open. The area in Olde Gahanna became known as Creekside.

Short North

Short North Arts District is a hip, culture-rich area centered on N. High Street. Contemporary galleries fill converted warehouses, and the Wexner Center for the Arts hosts boundary-pushing exhibitions. Shops selling records, streetwear, and vintage clothes are interspersed with student-packed coffeehouses, craft-beer bars, and casual eateries. Programming at Short North Stage spans musicals and cutting-edge drama.

Bexley

Bexley’s rapidly developing Main Street commercial corridor welcomes residents and visitors to the historic Drexel Theatre, wide-ranging dining options, art venues, and unique shopping destinations.

Incorporated as a village in 1908, Bexley is an old tree-lined suburb located on the banks of Alum Creek next to Driving Park or Wolfe Park.

A college town bisected by the National Road, Bexley resulted from a merger of neighborhoods including the prestigious Bullitt Park, established in 1889, and the Lutheran community centered on Capital University and Trinity Lutheran Seminary.

Notable properties include the Ohio Governor’s Mansion, Jeffrey Mansion “Kelveden,” and the residence used by The Ohio State University’s president.

Reynoldsburg

“The Birthplace of the Tomato” the city of Reynoldsburg offers its residents a variety of activities, whether in their metro parks or their yearly holiday festivities or even the “Tomato Festival”.

Worthington

Worthington is located in the center of the state at Ohio’s crossroads – the intersection of U.S. State Route 23 and State Route 161 – and affords easy access to all parts of Ohio and the nation. A suburb of Columbus, Ohio’s capital, Worthington offers all of the attractions and conveniences of a big city combined with the charm of small-town living.

Powell

The community was first settled around 1801, two years before Ohio became a state. It was named “Middlebury” at the time, because the first settlers came from the Middlebury, Connecticut area. In 1857, Judge Thomas Powell established the first post office in the community, and the residents decided to adopt his name. The town of Powell had its start in the building of the railroad through that territory.[7] Powell was finally incorporated as a municipality in 1947. The population remained small until the late 1980s, when residential development expanding from the northern Columbus metropolitan area reached Powell. In twenty years, the population rose from less than 400 to over 6,000.

Marysville

Marysville is a rural suburb of the Columbus, Ohio metro area and the county seat of Union County, Ohio. As an important center of manufacturing, in 1979, Honda of America opened its first plant in Marysville. Over the years Honda of America’s Marysville facility has grown tremendously. It now employs approximately 13,000 people at four separate manufacturing locations near Marysville. The city’s population was 22,094 at the 2010 census, marking a 38.59% increase from 2000. Marysville’s longtime slogan is “Where the Grass is Greener”.

Sunbury

Over the last 20 years, this little town in eastern Delaware County has nearly doubled in size and is on track to reach over 5000 residents within the next few years. Home to the Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial and various employers, Sunbury offers a variety of opportunities to its residents.

Lewis Center

Lewis Center is an unincorporated community in northwestern Orange Township, Delaware County, Ohio, United States, located between Columbus and Delaware. Lewis Center features a number of shopping centers and retail establishments that line the U.S. Route 23, as well as Alum Creek State Park.
