University District. Iuka Ravine. April 14th, 2010. Part Two

One of the things I love the most about Columbus is how green it is. You can be surrounded by trees and greenery and still be in the middle of one of the most populous neighborhoods in the city.

Next stop, Iuka Park Between Summit/Third and Fourth Street.













































Park sign on Fourth.





Looking south on Fourth. This is typical of the housing stock in many parts of the area. Most of it is of course rented to students from OSU.









More to come later...

South Campus. Part One.

The area between Neil Avenue in the west and High Street in the east and 9th Avenue in the north and Fifth Avenue in the south.


Starting on Neil Avenue and 8th Avenue.







Walking up King Avenue.



St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church on the corner of King Avenue and Forsythe Avenue.



















Almost to High Street.

On Forsythe Avenue.











Looking across Fifth Avenue.

Back up Forsythe Avenue.















After WWII, the demographics of North and South Campus began to change. Students soon replaced homeowners in the area and along streets north of King Avenue, single family homes were often replaced with abominations like this set of apartment buildings on Forsythe. These things become more prevalent the further north you go, especially Between Neil Avenue and High Street.

Back on King Avenue.





Intersection of Neil and King Avenues





More to come later....

South Campus. Part Two.

Walking up Neil Avenue.







Looking north on Neil towards the OSU campus.



Now looking south.





You can see that the house on the left, like many in this neighborhood, has been cut up into a multi-unit building. In this area, whatever wasn't leveled for suburban style apartments was cut up into sometimes as many as three or four unit apartment buildings. One of my Ex boyfriends lived in a house on the eastside which suffered a similar fate and it cost his roommate thousands of dollars to repair and return the interior back to what it had been before.



Another unfortunate old home.





The Neil Building, a new OSU dorm on Neil Avenue. Considering how horrible the ones on 11th Avenue are, these aren't half bad. Lord knows they could have been worse!



Looking south down Neil Again.









Scholars House West



Hanley House on the left and Pomerene on the right.



Worthington Building on the left and Scholar House East on the right.

More to come Monday or Tuesday.

TschŘ▀!

Grove City, May 5th 2010. Part One

Grove City, founded in 1852, is a city in Franklin County, Ohio, United States. The population was 27,075 at the 2000 census. It is a suburb of Columbus. In 2006, the population was estimated to be 31,820, and Grove City continues to be one of the fastest-growing suburbs of Columbus.

History

Grove City traces its beginnings to land grants bestowed upon Revolutionary War veterans General Daniel Morgan and Colonel William Washington. Hugh Grant, Jackson Township’s first white settler, set up a farm on a portion of this land near the turn of the eighteenth century.

In 1846, William Foster Breck purchased fifteen and a half acres from Grant’s son. In 1852, Breck and a commission of three other men laid out Grove City.
The community’s growth was steady and in March 1866, Grove City became an incorporated village. The first mayoral election was held in May of that year; town doctor Joseph Bulen was elected.

As the twentieth century approached, Grove City solidified its position as a “bedroom community” of Columbus with the completion of the Grove City and Greenlawn Street Railway. Though this railway ceased operations in the late 1920s, proximity to Columbus continued to spur growth and the village became a city on November 16, 1959.

Government

Grove City is operated based on a city charter that was originally written in 1958 and later amended in 1982. The charter gives the city's power to a Mayor, City Council and Administrator. Out of the three, the Administrator is the only appointed position, while the other two are elected.

Grove City is in Ohio's 15th congressional district, currently represented by Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy.

Cultural features

-The Gardens at Gantz Farm is a popular green thumb attraction. With over 200 yards, it is organized into three gardens: The Garden of Yesterday, The Garden of Today, and ----The Garden of Tomorrow. The Gardens are noted for their Aster alpinus ornamental flowers.
-The annual Grove City High School Alumni Softball Tournament has over ninety teams representing five decades of Grove City graduates. These teams compete in "the world's largest alumni tournament" on the last full weekend of July.
-Grove City features a historic town center, which hosts town-sponsored events such as the annual Arts in the Alley celebration, Boo on Broadway, as well as an annual -------Christmas parade. Moreover, the town center is home to a variety of bars, pubs, and shops.
-The Grove City High School Marching Band has won numeruos OMEA competitions and recently traveled to London, England, to participate in the London New Year's Parade. In 2009, the band traveled to Phoenix, Arizona and competed in a national competition, winning the overall competition(2nd field show, first parade marching). The program is internationally known, partly because of alumni such as Todd Fessler, nationally recognized flute player and Sean Robinette, conductor of the internationally known Robinette Performing Group.
-Central Crossing High School shelters all who appreciate fine arts. CCHS' theater department features a one of a kind performance for both cast and crew. The school puts on two performances each year, one play and one musical.
-Grove City is home to the Gap Inc. Online Order Processing Center, which processes online orders from Gap, Inc, Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Piperlime.
-Grove City is the home of the Columbus Comets women's professional American football team.
-Grove City is the broadcast location of radio station WWGV on 88.1 FM
-Grove City is the host of the annual Grove City Criterium, a road bicycle short-course (less than 5 km) race run on closed-off city center streets.
-Grove City is the home of the Beulah Park horse racing venue.

Grove City and St. John Lutheran (German) Cemeteries





My Great Great Grandparents.





Saint John's Lutheran Church Cemetery (also known as the German Lutheran Cemetery) is located on Grove City Road in Grove City, Ohio (Jackson Township, Franklin County). The cemetery is located towards the back of the Grove City Cemetery, in the southwest corner. It was established in 1860.

Saint John's Lutheran church cemetery is very well taken care of. Almost all of the gravestones are still standing, although it does appear that there has been some vandalism since two of the statues are missing heads. If it wasn't for the sign, most people would probably think these graves were in the Grove City Cemetery since you have to access it by driving through Grove City Cemetery.

On a side note, I would guess 90% of the people buried here are German and from what I saw, atleast 75% of the grave stones were in German. Kinda cool eh?

Franklinton, Part One

Franklinton is a neighborhood in Columbus, Ohio. Lucas Sullivant, a Virginia born land surveyor, established Franklinton in 1797. It is bordered by the Scioto River on the east and north, Greenlawn Avenue on the south, and I-70 on the west. West Broad Street, or US 40, is one of the country's first roads and is Franklinton's main throughway.

Franklinton is the neighborhood immediately west of downtown. It gets its colorful nickname because much of the land lies below the level of the Scioto and Olentangy rivers, and a floodwall is required to contain the rivers and protect the area from devastating floods. The fertile, low-lying bottom land was ideal for farming, with the river serving as a direct connection to the Ohio River and beyond. (Just to the west of Franklinton is a group of smaller neighborhoods commonly referred to as "The Hilltop.") More recently, "The Bottoms" has been applied to describe the low socioeconomic status and comparatively high crime rate of the area.

According to the Franklinton Area Commission:

-Though Franklinton is the last downtown neighborhood to be redeveloped, it is actually the birth place of Columbus, settled 15 years before the city itself.

-Franklinton was once a separate city from Columbus, like the present-day cities of Bexley and Whitehall, which are both completely surrounded by the city of Columbus, but continue to exist as separate municipalities.

-Since the completion of the floodwall, the community redevelopment has included more than forty residential projects, a new firehouse, two new schools, new residential dorms at Mount Carmel Medical Center West and the exploration of countless commercial projects.

-This neighborhood has easy access to all of Columbus' major highways.

-The neighborhood is a recovering flood area.
