“German Village, Columbus’ premiere downtown neighborhood is one of the preeminent historic districts in the United States. German Village is 233 acres of “living” history where the old meets the new and the result is a vibrant and charming community.” – www.germanvillage.com
German Village is a historic neighborhood just south of Downtown Columbus. It was settled in the early-to-mid-19th century by a large number of German immigrants, who at one time comprised as much as a third of the city’s entire population. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 30, 1974, becoming the largest privately funded preservation district on the list, and in 2007, was made a Preserve America Community by the White House. On November 28, 1980, its boundaries were increased and today it is one of the premier historic restorations in the world.
German Village is a model of urban neighborhood preservation and revitalization – a nationally recognized success story. The Village has a single commercially zoned strip along Livingston Avenue, and the rest of the neighborhood is mixed use. There is some concentration of businesses along Third Street, Mohawk Street and Whittier Avenue, too. The Village is mostly a residential neighborhood of sturdy, red-brick homes with wrought iron fences along tree-lined, brick-paved streets.
