Relocating to Worthington Ohio
Worthington got its start back in 1803 and was one of the Midwest’s first planned communities combining commerce, residential life, education and faith reflecting its New England heritage with authentic and small-town charm. Many of the brick sidewalks lead to the central village green which offers most of the commercial buildings and churches.
Dating back to the early 1800s and just after Ohio became a state, 11 families left Connecticut and traveled by wagon train to the Worthington area. They named the new Village Worthington in honor of Thomas Worthington, one of Ohio’s first senators and future governor. The small pioneer village prospered and the post office was built in 1805, an Academy in 1808, and a newspaper and manufacturing company in 1811. In 1835, the Ohio legislature incorporated Worthington as its own village with an elected council and mayor. It continued to grow in population and served as the market center for surrounding agricultural farms throughout the remainder of the 19th century.
When the electric street railway connected Columbus to Worthington in 1893, the village became a suburb of the main city and continue to grow with private homes and estates. In 1954, residents of the Colonial Hills neighborhood facilitated petitions to annex to Worthington. The subdivision actually had more residents than the village itself and together, they had more than the 5000 residents needed to be incorporated as a city. Shortly thereafter, population grew exponentially up until about 1970. New subdivisions,, and annexations helped grow Worthington and when Interstate 270 was completed in 1975 defining Worthington’s northern boundary, growth stabilized and the Worthington school district was created also covering significant areas outside the city’s boundaries.
Today, Worthington is home to roughly 15,000 residents featuring amazing schools, shops, markets, restaurants, and a variety of residential neighborhoods. It’s considered the #6 Best Pl. to live in the Columbus Metro area. But don’t take our word for it, here’s what locals have to say about living in Worthington.
"I recently moved to Worthington from the New Albany area and I feel right at home! I live in an apartment complex and have easy access to all major road and highways. Even with the freeway so close, the neighborhood is nestled back in a way that there is almost no noise! Close by there is downtown Worthington, a quaint area with antique shops, small cafes, and even a historic looking Dairy Queen. On Saturdays, the community hosts a farmers market to support local businesses and farmers sell their stock. One of my favorite parts about Worthington is the access to a wide variety of activities. Spend your day strolling through the park, or catch a movie at Crosswoods! The overall small community holds new opportunities around every corner. Stop off at at a pub for a drink and some evening entertainment, or head to the mall and shop until you drop! Worthington is a great place for anyone to live for individuals and families. It's my recommendation to consider Worthington as your next move" - Niche.com
