The neighborhood immediately south of Worthington is the Chaseland neighborhood.
The Chaseland neighborhoods is in the City of Columbus.
Chaseland is just south of Worthington and east of High Street, the three streets south of Selby Blvd, Chase, Lincoln and Stanton are the Chaseland neighborhood. The sign pictured is on the east side of High Street and welcomes you to Clintonville. Chaseland is in the City of Columbus... but it could have been part of the City of Worthington if things had turned out differently.
Chaseland neighborhood history
I never realized until reading the book "Worthington Neighborhoods" by Jennie McCormick that "In 1954, voters approved the annexation of Chaseland into Worthington." Franklin county commissioners would not allow it so the Chaseland neighborhood became a city of Columbus neighborhood.
Confused in Columbus? I am. I wonder why??? Why not Worthington? Why would Franklin County not want the Chaseland neighborhood to be part of Worthington? I wonder too how long after the vote (who was voting?) did Chaseland become part of the City of Columubus?
Chaseland was part of the historic Worthington it was a Worthington farmlot. The land that was developed as Chaseland had been part of Rev. Philander Chase (one of the original settler's) farm. Chase was the first pastor at St. John's Episcopal Church in Worthington.
Columbus' Chaseland neighborhood is part of the Clintonville area.
