Worthington Real Estate
Worthington was named for Thomas Worthington, an Ohio senator. It was founded by settlers from Connecticut in 1803, the year Ohio became a state. Similar to many early communities, the Village Green, located in the middle of uptown, was fashioned in the New England tradition.
At that time, it was used as an open pasturage and grazing area for farmers when they came into town. The walkways are lined with brick, some of which bear the names of early pioneers. The green is now often used for festivals, concerts and a farmer’s market in the summer. A walking tour is offered in this historic area.
Surrounding the green are many of the city’s original churches and buildings in the historic business area. The district schools consistently earn high ratings and are recognized as some of the best in the state. Its two high schools received gold, silver or bronze medals in the U.S. News Best High Schools rankings.
The Community Center features an aquatic complex, fitness center and many other amenities for the family. The arts community also includes the Worthington Chorus, Community Theatre and Art League.
Early American charm abounds in this picturesque community, just minutes from modern shopping malls, gulf courses, and numerous other activities. A suburb of Columbus, it is located at Ohio’s crossroads—the intersection of State Routes 23 and 161. Interstate 270 surrounds the area.
