Relocating to Bexley
Bexley is a small suburban city in Franklin County just outside of Columbus along Highway 16. Home to about 14,000 residents, Bexley was founded as a little village over 100 years ago and is considered a mature, tree-lined suburb of Columbus situated on the banks of the Alum Creek next to Driving Park and Wolf Park just east of the Franklin Park Conservatory. It's bisected by National Road or Main Street and is best known for its larger estates and homes primarily in the subdivision of Bullitt Park. The most famous of these estates include the Jeffrey Park Mansion, the home of the president of the Ohio State University, and the Ohio governor's mansion. The governor's mansion [pictured] was originally built as a private residence in 1925 and given to the state in 1955. This home has served as the official residence of the Ohio governor since 1957.
Why Move to Bexley?
Bexley is right outside of downtown so it's just a few minutes to shops, restaurants, and all the entertainment of downtown Columbus. It's rapidly developing Main Street commercial core door has historical theaters, dining options, art venues, and shopping destinations. It was originally incorporated as a village in 1908 and is technically a college town bisected by the National Road. Bexley resulted from a merger of neighborhoods including the Lutheran community centered on Capital University and Trinity Lutheran Seminary and the prestigious Bullitt Park community.

"I have lived in Bexley for 4 years now and love everything about this suburb. The community is very welcoming and comfortable. There is always a new place to eat whether you are looking for something casual like pizza or even a fancier night out at the local steakhouse. The grocery shopping is convenient with a new Giant Eagle as well as a Kroger, CVS, and more just down the road. There are always new places coming about aiding in the prominent college crowd of the private institution, Capital University. Housing includes anything from apartments to beautiful old mansions. This environment is somewhere I would recommend to anyone."

"I love going to school in Bexley, it's a great community. We may be a small school/suburb area but I think that's a big factor in what makes this community so unique. Class sizes are smaller; which allows everyone to get to know each other, between students or teachers or even the interactions between students and teachers. This allows great relationships to be built between students of different ages and provides students with lots of helping resources because the teachers want to see the students succeed. We all also live relatively close to each other; our town is about a 2 by 3 mile community, making anything from hangouts to community events easily accessible and fun. Since Bexley is small, we can have more educational funding. Allowing there to be a wider choice of classes, new technology, and more staff to further our education. Bexley is a great community that is very supportive and wants you to grow." - Niche.com
