Westerville, Ohio was once known as the “Dry Capital of the World” due to the forbidden sale of alcohol in 1859. Located in the northeastern pocket of Franklin County and spilling over into Delaware Country, Westerville is the largest suburb of Columbus. With a great uptown district featuring shopping, dining, and unique bed & breakfasts, Westerville was named one of America’s best places to live. Westerville is home to Otterbein College, a liberal arts college, and it is minutes from Ohio State University, where local resident Andy Katzenmoyer played football.
A beautiful, family-friendly community, Westerville has a state-of-the-art community center and several beautiful parks. Enjoy the trees at Sharon Woods Metro Park or cruise the 25 miles of bike and walking trails along the banks of Alum Creek.
Westerville is home to several companies. Major employers include Cheryl and Co (Cheryl’s Cookies), Worthington Industries, American Ceramic Society, and Schneider’s Bakery. Those who prefer natural health food will enjoy the Raisin Rack and Uptown Westerville’s Farm Market. Or, enjoy the epicurial stylings of the Old Bag of Nails, Jimmy V’s Pub, or Pasquale’s Pizza.
Commuting into Columbus is easy, but Westerville’s quaint boutiques, local restaurants, and exciting nightlife make this a place you’ll want to stay.
