The Delawanda

Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

Delawanda Park and RideThe Delawanda was where the Delawanda Park and Ride is today.  The Delawanda was a "tea-room" in the late 20s and early 1930s.  The Delawanda would have been in an unincorporated area, Sharon Township back in the 1920s and 1930s, north of Columbus.  The Delawanda had a Worthington address, the Village of Worthington would have been closer than a Columbus post office at the time?  It makes me wonder if Old Beechwold had a Worthington address in the 1920s and 1930s. The park and ride is north of Rathbone Rd. The Old Beechwold neighborhood is just south of Rathbone Rd.

There is a photo of The Delawanda with family members standing out front on Bleimes Flickr photostream, a collection of family photos.  

The Delawanda - Worthington, Ohio

Bleimes on Flickr (a grand daughter of the 5 year old in the photo of The Delawanda with family members out front on High Street) r identifies those in the photo as:

"George R Bleimes, George Bleimes 5, Arko von Ritterschloss (dog), William "Billy" McCarty."  and the building behind them as  "Delawanda Tea Room, Worthington, Ohio. ca 1929. "

The family history by George Bleimes (the 5 year old boy in the photo) says:

"About 1927 mother and grandmother opened a dining establishment in our house that they called a “tea-room” and named it The Delawanda. Seating for customers was in the three front rooms. They had a 12’ X 20’ room added to the back for a kitchen and a first floor lavatory installed."

The Bleimes family history shows the same photo as the one on Flickr, with the family standing in front, with the 'The Delawanda'  sign.  Also another photo straight on and closer up, the first photo in the history shows the house at 4939 N. High St. which was "The Delawanda" a tea-room.
