Worthington History

Residents are proud of their city’s rich New England heritage and historic downtown. Founded in 1803, the same year Ohio became a state, Worthington began as a community planned by a group of 38 men in New England. Under the leadership of James Kilbourn, they formed the Scioto company to purchase land west of the Allegheny Mountains and create a New England style town they could move to. Thanks to the help of Thomas Worthington, a surveyor in Chillicothe (also an Ohio Senator and 6th Governor of Ohio), the 38 proprietors from Connecticut and Massachusetts purchased 16,000 acres along the Whetstone River (now Olentangy River). The town of Worthington consisted of 8000 acres, surveyed into 164 lots for homes and businesses, a five acre public green in the center of the village, space for a church and school all surrounded by Sharon Township farm lots, in true New England style. The town was named Worthington in honor of Thomas Worthington, who had helped locate this land. The founders of the community brought ideas of New England architecture and community with them, which survives today.

In 1812, Worthington lost its bid to become the state capital, but during its early years it became known for its religious activity, educational opportunities and anti-slavery principles. Worthington’s growth after 1850 was limited allowing the community to remain a homogeneous village until after World War II, thereby preserving a number of its historic properties. By World War II, Worthington's population was 1,569. In 1954, Worthington became a city when Colonial Hills subdivision was annexed into the Village, increasing the population to the required 5000 residents. 

There are 31 places from small shops to large churches and the Vining Hopewell Indian Mound, on the National Register of Historic Places, located throughout the Old Worthington area. Many streets are still paved with brick and the luscious green spaces in the downtown area are very inviting. In addition, Worthington is also home to the historic and unique Rush Creek neighborhood, with houses patterned after Frank Lloyd Wright’s idea of organic architecture.
