Columbus

German Village

German Village, the internationally recognized historic district just blocks from downtown Columbus, Ohio, has much to offer visitors. Charming restored neighborhood settles in mid-1800s by German immigrants is a trip back in time.

Natives of Germany arrived in the capital city as early as its founding in 1812, but it was only after 1830, when new transportation routes from the east facilitated travel, that a major wave of German immigration began. By the 1850s, the area just south of downtown Columbus had a distinct flavor, with school lessons and church services conducted entirely in German and with several newspapers printed in the German language to serve the community. The 233-acre district offers a glimpse of how a working-class neighborhood developed and grew in the early nineteenth century and how the passion of a small group drove the twentieth century rehabilitation efforts.
