Powell will celebrate its Bicentennial next year (which is ironic, because Powell is fairly new as a developed community). This southern Delaware County suburb of Columbus was settled in 1813, and not named officially until 1857, named after Judge Thomas Powell. Powell did not start growing until around the 1990s, and the growth continues to this very day. The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is located in the Powell area.
1) Yes, it is an official vending machine
2) Scioto Reserve Country Club- It’s a golf club with an event space and conference center in the northern part of Powell.
3) Municipal Building- This and the Police Department are right next to the Village Green Park on Hall Street in Historic* Downtown Powell
4) St. Joan of Arc Parish- On Liberty/Smoky Row Road, right on the Franklin/Delaware County line, this Catholic Parish, built in the 1980s, serves the Powell area
5) Library Park- This is a park right next to the Powell branch of the Delaware County District Library on S. Liberty St.
6) Dresses- These cute dresses were on mannequins outside of a dress store in Historic* Downtown Powell
7) Wedgewood- Like Scioto Reserve, Wedgewood is a private golf club. There probably isn’t a shortage of golf courses in the Dublin/Powell area.
8) Liberty Street development- This development on Liberty Street (south of Olentangy Street) houses several businesses, including the Powell Chamber of Commerce.
9) Powell Liberty Antique Mall
10) The Columbus Zoo- This trolley takes you closer to the Zoo’s entrance from the parking lot (One would ask me how I got to Powell? The seasonal Zoo Bus Route is the answer, and ditto for how I got to Shawnee Hills, which is in the opposite direction from the Zoo, so the secret’s out).
Next neighborhood/community- Lithopolis (sometime this week)
