Relocating to Clintonville
This Columbus suburb borders the Olentangy River on the west, Glen Echo Creek to the south, railroad tracks to the east and the Worthington city limits to the north. Originally called the Clinton Township name for US VP George Clinton, was originally too hilly and steep for development until farmland was purchased by the Bull family and constructed a chapel that served as a stop on the Underground Railroad over the next couple of decades in the mid-1800s. By the early 1900s, downtown Columbus residents and professors from the Ohio State University had built summer homes in Clintonville and the surrounding farmland was developed into subdivisions and housing developments. This was shortly after the extension of the streetcar lines northward from Columbus. A business district was developed and many other subdivisions grew to the small community it is today.
Clintonville is divided into several distinct neighborhoods including South Clintonville, North Clintonville, Beechwold, North of Morse, and Old Beechwold. Old Beechwold is Clintonville’s only neighborhood listed on the National Historic Registry. Most of the streets throughout Clintonville are named after early settlers of the area and there are several landmarks registered as historic sites throughout Clintonville.
Clintonville is part of the Columbus city school district and there are several schools that serve the Clintonville area including the Columbus Alternative High school, Centennial high school, the Graham School, Clinton Elementary, and Indian Springs Elementary.
In addition to its landmarks, Clintonville also has several parks including Whetstone Park, Olentangy Park, and Columbus's first zoo located in Clintonville, which opened in 1905. However, there are a few remaining structures from the original zoo including the monkey house, now used as a barn, the zoo’s stone entranceway and the “kissing Bridge” on Rustic Bridge Road.
The Whetstone Park is a Columbus landmark. It offers bike trails, sports fields, tennis courts, a library, and a recreational facility. It also has a 13-acre Columbus Park of Roses, which opened in 1952 and is a perfect site for weddings and special events. Olentangy Park was once home to the largest amusement park in the United States. The Villa opened in 1880. It featured four large roller coasters, a zoo, a dance pavilion, waterslides, and rentable canoes for the Olentangy River. It was home to the largest theater is the country as well as the largest swimming pool in the world at the time. The park closed in 1939 and the land was used to build Olentangy Village Apartments. However, if you look close, you can see the scattered remains of the park throughout the woods and by the river. The park's carousel was moved in 1999 and restored, which can now be seen at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
