Worthington - School Spirit

9/11 - Never Forget

We will never forget the events of 13 years ago today.  Flags were ordered at half-mass throughout Ohio (and across the country).

PHOTOS: Main Street Bridge (Westerville, Ohio); Statehouse (Columbus, Ohio); Village Green via # 2 COTA Bus (Worthington, Ohio); Pierce Cleaners via # 2 COTA Bus (Columbus, Ohio; Clintonville); First Responders Park (Hilliard, Ohio); Fire Station 111 (Westerville, Ohio); Sharon Township Fire Station (Worthington, Ohio)

Colonial Hills (Worthington, OH)

NOTE: This is under construction.  More photos will be added once I am available to take some.

Colonial Hills is a neighborhood in Worthington to the immediate southeast of Olde Worthington.  In 1954, the residents of Colonial Hills asked to be annexed into Worthington.  The combined residents of both Colonial Hills and the (then) Village of Worthington would be enough to make Worthington a city.

One of the big events in Colonial Hills has been their Fourth of July festivities.

Olde Worthington (Worthington, OH)

It has the quaint, New England charm that the settlers from Granby, Connecticut built Worthington on in the early 1800s, and Olde Worthington still maintains the wholesome, small New England town-feel 200 years later.

Linworth (Worthington)

Half-Dublin, Half-Worthington, that is how the neighborhood of Linworth got its name.  Located just west of State Route 315 in Worthington, this Northwest Columbus neighborhood is bridging the gap between Worthington and Dublin, but for the most part, it is mostly Worthington.  Dublin-Granville Road has a few restaurants, plus the Village Bookshop and the Brookside Country Club along the Linworth drag.  Linworth Road is another main street in Linworth.

A Trip Around Columbus: Worthington

Founded by settlers from New England, Worthington is the second-oldest community in Franklin County, being founded in October of 1803.  Worthington was founded by James Kilbourne, a settler from Connecticut, who named the community after a town in Connecticut (rumors have persisted that it was named after Thomas Worthington).  A Masonic Lodge was built the following year (1804), and then a post office, newspaper, and manufacturing company followed suit in the coming decade.  Worthington officially became a village in 1835, and the population remained stable for most of the 19th Century.  In the 1890s, a street railway connected Columbus to Worthington.


The original part of Worthington still has the quaint, New England charm that the settlers from (mostly) Connecticut built upon over 210 years ago.  As Worthington grew in the 20th Century, newer neighborhoods were built.  In 1954, Colonial Hills, a community to the immediate south of the village of Worthington, circulated petitions to annex into Worthington, giving Worthington enough residents to incorporate as a city.  As State Route 315, Interstate 71, and Interstate 270 were built in the 1960s and 1970s, Worthington grew from a village to a sprawling suburb. But, it still maintains the small town charm and wholesome suburban atmosphere.  Olde Worthington is like stepping into a historic New England town, while there are newer communities, like Worthington Hills, Worthington Estates, Worthington Woods, and Colonial Hills.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
