Tour Columbus

Columbus

The city of Columbus has every sort of neighborhood. Thanks partly to aggressive annexation in the 1950's and 1960's and a mixed economy, the city has not been strangled by suburban growth and has been able to maintain a healthy tax base to support public services. Columbus is also home to The Ohio State University campus, Battelle Laboratories, the new Center of Science and Industry, a renowned Children's Hospital, the recent addition of the Columbus Crew, our major league soccer team, and the Columbus Blue Jackets, a recent addition to the NHL.

Canal Winchester

Beyond the outer belt, on the very southeastern edge of Franklin County, Canal Winchester remains a small rural town. It is on the very rim of the Columbus sprawl, but easy to access from downtown. Today it is a close community with shady streets and a sleepy downtown, but it's independence could be affected in the near future with the shrinking availability of property elsewhere in the county. Real working farms lie all around, but a couple of subdivisions nearby are signs of the change that inevitably will come to this town.

Dublin

Growth has hit Dublin so hard that officials can only guess its current population figures. Most residents find themselves in one of the many subdivisions in the area, the most exclusive being Murifield Village built in the 1970s by Jack Nicholas around a championship golf course that hosts the annual PGA Memorial Tournament. Dublin offers many wonderful community areas with local elementary schools and parks. The boom has attracted comparable commercial development, including a commercial park along Frantz Road and strip shopping and hotels where the outer belt intersects Route 33. A heavy transferee area, this is a good place to make friends quickly and be involved in civic and school activities.
