Relocating to Canal Winchester
Canal Winchester is located along Highway 33 southeast of downtown Columbus just south of Pickerington, Brice, Blacklick Estates, and Groveport. The small city in Fairfield and Franklin County is home to about 8600 residents and was originally founded in 1828. It got its name for the construction of the Ohio and Erie Canal, which came through the original founder's wheat field. The owner, Ruben Dove, wanted to sue the state because of the invasion and instead, Canal workmen convince the owner that he be better off simply building a town around the area because it was midway between Columbus and Lancaster. So, in 1828, Ruben Dove and his partner John Coleman recorded the first plat for Winchester Ohio and it began to flourish based on its agriculture and transportation. The canal brought passengers, freight, and lots of other equipment through the town and the first canal boat floated through Winchester in 1831. The village was named Canal Winchester when the post office was established in 1841. Since then, the small community has gradually grown over the years to the booming 8600 (ha) it is today.

What's it like to live in Canal Winchester?
"I was raised in this neighborhood and I always really liked it. I have made great friends here that I still have to this day. The people are generally pretty friendly and generally pretty safe. The school system is pretty good and they have expanded a lot of the schools to meet the number of students attending. I liked most of my teachers during my schooling and they were very generous and helped me a lot with college. It is a pretty small town so it never feels crowded or too big, but it is currently expanding and it is getting a lot of new restaurants, shops, breweries, etc. which I think has been a good addition. Canal Winchester is also close to Columbus and other bigger cities so if one ever gets the need to change scenery to a more urban place, it is easy to go to Columbus and explore. Canal Winchester is a great place for families or people looking to settle down and just relax." - Niche.com
