Doll Museum - The Old RectoryA video about Worthington Ohio* from Real Living starts at the Doll Museum at the Old Rectory on the corner of New England Ave.and Oxford Street in Old Worthington.    

Worthington Sign

The Real Living Story talks a lot about Old Worthington which is a community treasure, but it is only a small part of the City of Worthington.  A previous entry here describes that historic neighborhood in some detail: A New England Village in Central Ohio    

Most of Worthington is very walkable.  There are great shops and restaurants on High Street in Worthington.  There are community events on the green. 

Other Worthington residential neighborhoods include: 

Rush Creek Village  - a Worthington neighborhood of Usonian designed homes.  Written about in detail in the New York Times (may require a sign in)  and a San Diego site as well as others. History but a different era.    

Colonial Hills has an entry on Wikipedia - 1940's era homes with an interesting history. 

Worthington Estates is a sought after Worthington neighborhood within walking distance of the elementary, middle and high schools.   

Other Worthington neighborhoods include Wilson Hills, Olentangy Hills, Worthingway, Medick Estates, and Potters Creek.  

Linworth, once a village between Dublin and Worthington on Dublin-Granville Rd. is part of the city of Worthington with a mixture of styles and ages of homes .  

Sometimes Riverlea gets confusing.  Riverlea is a separate village, encircled by Worthington.... actually Riverlea has the river on the west, but Worthington on the other three sides. The Village of  Riverlea has it's own mayor and city council.  Riverlea is part of the Worthington School District and contracts with Worthington for police and fire service.

What's happening in Worthington now?  There are two weekly papers to keep you up to date, as well as the Columbus Dispatch.

Worthington News*

The Real Living Story about Worthington says  "Worthington is a charming, New England village located in the heart of Ohio. Before you plan your move to Worthington, contact a Real Living agent. " Although the last line should read  "Before you plan your move to Worthington, contact Maureen McCabe..." in my humble opinion.

Edit 2012 * the video has moved and the link is broken. The Columbus Dispatch bought the other Worthingon paper (the whole chain of newspapers and then some) , so there is only one Worthington paper. I have no idea what happend to the city link but it is broken.

Hi, Maureen,

I currently live in the Canton/Massillon area of OH ... and I plan to relocate to your area in the summer of 2008.  I have a lot of time to do more research, and there are other areas I plan to visit in the Columbus area as well.

In the fall of 2008, my daughter plans to attend Ohio University in Athens.  Not only would I like to live closer to my daughter; I'd also like to get out of this area.

I visited Worthington about a month ago and I just fell in love with it!  I had lunch at the pub, went into all the little shops downtown, rode up and down all the streets, went into the mall, and ended up at the coffee shop downtown.

I love the diversity in Worthington as well as it's scenic beauty, quaintness and charm.

In the past few months, I've visited Lancaster, Worthington, Clintonville and Westerville.  Thus far, I prefer Worthington.

I'm a single mom with a daughter leaving for college and I make about $40,000 per year.  Is it feasible for me to be thinking about moving to Worthington?

You seem to know your stuff, so I thought I'd ask.

Thank you in advance for any information you can offer.

Laura thanks for the comment.  There are some great less expensive neighborhoods in Worthington in walking distance to High Street, Colonial Hills, the area that is sometimes referred to as Colonial Hills W... and Worthington Park (1950's and 1960's ranches.) Or a condo? 

When you get to the City of Columbus neighborhoods that are in the Worthington school district you lose that ability to walk to the Village Green, the shops and restaurants on High Street but there is even more affordable housing. 

I have some great local loan officer's listed on my website MaureenMcCabe.com - mortgages  They can tell you based on income and debts what you qualify for.

Dear Maureen;

 

Today, I received a flattering, surprising telephone call from the Personnel Director for the City of Worthington, Ohio. It was a long distance call asking me to come from Connecticut to Wothington, for a job interview as the City's Senior Center Manager. I have worked in the field of gerontology for almost 30 years. The funny thing that went through my mind was, "Do I want to move away from family and friends?" Also, "Would I be able to afford housing in the Worthington area and be able to sell my current home?" I had only information that I looked up on the Internet about Worthington. My reaction was to thank the Personnnel Director for her positive remarks about my credentials for the position, but turned down the offer for an interview. Discovering your information now, I feel that I should have at least visited Worthington first.

 

Sincerely,

 

Harvey Leon Frydman

You might have felt right at home!  The Senior Center is just north of the Worthington Green. 

I know the founding fathers of Worthington Ohio went to a lot of trouble to build a New England village in Ohio.   

Thanks for the comment.
