Sunbury Real Estate
Sunbury is a quaint historic village located in central Ohio. The name “Sunbury” was recorded in 1816 by two brothers, William and Lawrence Myers, who came from Pennsylvania. The village is centered around a New England traditional style town square with the village hall located in the center of a village green. The town hall was built in 1868 and has served in many capacities including: the village’s Town Hall, jail, fire station, community library, bank, and Masons lodge.
Because of Sunbury’s proximity to the geographic center of the state, it was chosen as the site for a memorial honoring Ohio’s military who have been lost since September 11, 2001. The village green is used for numerous events throughout the year, including a farmers’ market during the summer. Sunbury is in the Big Walnut School District. Its schools are highly rated based on the “Great Scores” rating. It is near to golf courses and Alum Creek and Hoover Reservoir, where boating and summer activities abound.
Conveniently located a few miles east of I71 and just a half-hour drive from downtown Columbus, the area surrounding Sunbury has housing and townhome developments available.
