German Village

A friend and I recently wandered deep into the heart of Buckeye Country and spent a weekend in Ohio’s capital. Columbus has an historic neighborhood which was settled by German immigrants well before Ohio was a state.

German Village has a distinct European feel, with brick homes and streets, walled gardens, and former brewery buildings with old-world styling. Sadly, those who settled this previously-uninhabited territory were squeezed out with the anti-German sentiments of The First World War.
The Village still retains its charm and is now a desirable neighborhood and popular visitor area. Just wandering the streets is fun!
