Linworth - Worthington Ohio

By
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

Linworth was a separate village at one point but is now part of  the City of Worthington. 

I swear this sign was up in 1990 when we were moving to Columbus.  I remember the Realtor showing us homes telling us the thing about the name being the end of Dublin and the beginning of Worthington.  I don't know if she told us more about Elmwood or Elmwood Station which was the name of the spot on the road that was never incorporated according to Jennie McCormick's 'Worthington Neighborhood book.  The name was changed from Elmwood to Linworth in 1910.

Linworth sign 

The sign is across the road from The Village Bookstore, which was a Methodist Church, Bright's Chapel Methodist Church.  There used to be a name there above "Leasing" for the shopping area planned for that field.

The original Elmwood plat runs from Thompson St. to Linworth Road (formerly known as  Columbus & Delaware Pike) , Thompson St. and Hutchinson St. in the original Elmwood plat, were each a north south street  on either side of the railroad tracks.  You can see the two streets there on the map, running north from Dublin Granville Road (161)  Different development than today!

There were a couple of infill houses built in the Elmwood subdivision in Linworth in the past decade.

There was a Linworth Post Office (originally Elmwood Station) and a railroad station but they are long gone.

There are residential areas in Linworth including Bellbrook Place, Flora Villa, Strathaven and Westbrook Place. There are businesses.
