A Columbus Neighborhood


Westerville is a suburb of Columbus that thrives on its historic origins and active sensibilities. Many of the old brick buildings have been recently renovated, meaning that your local Starbucks may be contained in a late 19th century town home. This is an intellectual ‘burb, containing an award-winning library and the underplayed Otterbein University. Residents are located conveniently near two large shopping malls known across Ohio: the Easton Town Center and Polaris Fashion Place. For those looking for Westerville’s artistic side, check out Historic Uptown. Uptown is full of smaller shops and restaurants that are the pride of the community, giving the community an artistic flair that rivals parts of Short North. This area also hosts the exciting 4th Friday Festival. To attend the Westerville Area Chamber Music and Arts Festival, cruise on over to Heritage Park. Westerville is also an incredibly health-conscious and active community that gets a lot of use out of its large Park and Recreation Center.
