Creeping Clintonville Border - blame Columbus real estate agents, according to Wikipedia or the author of the Clintonville article on Wikipedia
"As the cachet of the Clintonville neighborhood grew towards the turn of the 21st century, real estate agents began to label homes north of Cooke Road as being in Clintonville, leading to the apparent absorption of Beechwold and nearby neighborhoods south of Worthington. It was not uncommon in the booming real estate market circa 2000 to even find homes outside of the distinct east and west borders being sold as "Clintonville" homes. Because Clintonville and Beechwold have no official existence, however, the boundaries are a matter of opinion."
Pictured the sign just south of W. Stanton Rd, at the southern border of the city of Worthington and the city of Columbus. Was the sign on High St. saying "Welcome to Clintonville" posted by rogue real estate agents because of "the cachet of the Clintonville neighborhood."? I always assumed the City of Columbus was responsible for posting the "Welcome to Clintonville" sign at the border between the cities of Columbus and Worthington. The sign is just south of Cemetery St., the southern border of the City of Worthington on the west side of High Street. On the east side of High St. Selby is in the City of Worthington, Chase is in the City of Columbus.
