Relocating to Galena Ohio
This quaint and quiet community offers a short commute to downtown Columbus, great schools, and gives you a wealth of lifestyle opportunities. Galena was originally called Zoar, which identified it with the ancient city of refuge referenced in the biblical book of Genesis. It was originally platted in 1816 but in 1834, residents applied for a post office and the name was disqualified because such a community already existed in a neighboring county. It is unknown why the name Galena was adopted but shortly after, the post office was created in the name stuck.
Galena originally was established to take advantage of waterpower as its industrial base has always been modest. Galena saw grist and sawmills throughout the 1860s and into the 1920s along Big Walnut Creek. Several textile companies, markets, churches, and schools were created throughout the years and a railroad line was constructed in 1873. While Galena has never been the booming city of neighboring towns, it still has a quiet history and a quaint little village field.
Living in Galena
"Galena is on the north side of Columbus just far enough away from the bustle of the city but close enough to have everything you need nearby! Lots of great parks, walking paths, and schools. The mudflats of Galena are world famous and you can walk the boardwalk to explore the area."
"I have always loved my experience of growing up in our Galena neighborhood. My parents first built our house in 2002, a couple months after I was born. I grew up with my childhood best friend that lived next door to me. Our parents even cleared a path from my house to her house. Every day we would go to our neighborhood pond and try to catch turtles, tadpoles, and fish. We practically lived outside. Our parents even built a treehouse on a lightening-split tree for our outdoor adventures in the woods. The neighborhood was always full of kids my age, doing a numerous amount of activities. As I grew up and my childhood best friend moved 2 hours away, the youth life grew up just like I did. Now, there's not that many kids in our neighborhood anymore but when I see a lemonade stand or spending hours at our pond, all I can do is smile and remember the good times." - Niche.com
