Westerville - 'Up On The Housetop' Is it too early for Christmas songs? Sunny 95 and some other radio stations don't think so.   As the signs as you enter Westerville say Benjamin R. Handy wrote 'Darling Nelly Gray.'  Most people today are probably more  familiar with another song written by Hanby,  'Up On The Housetop' a Christmas song.  The Ohio Historical Society site for Hanby House in Westerville says the song was originally called 'Santa Claus.'  Hanby House - 160 W.

I was trying to find something about Westerville's history and ended up on the Westerville Libraries website. Westerville has such an interesting history, the Underground Railroad, the temperance movement and the Whisky Wars including the Anti-Saloon League...  Sometimes I think Westerville has a much more colorful history in many ways than some of it's Central Ohio neighbors. What I was looking for about Westerville was....  I was thinking  Westerville was having a birthday.  I keep thinking that Dublin and Westerville are the same age....  I thought Worthington was settled in 1803 and Dublin and Westerville were settled in 1810.  I was wrong.  I guess  Westerville's first white settlers arrived in 1806.  The Westervelt's arrived in 1816 and got the city named after them. Dublin Ohio i...

Westerville is the BEST Place to Live in all of Ohio.  Not just the best place to live in Central Ohio.... all of Ohio, northeast Ohio, southwest Ohio... The Columbus suburb made the list of  100 BEST Places to Live on  CNNMoney.com, a list of US cities.   Westerville at number 15  is the top city in Ohio in the list… None of the other Ohio cities that made the 100 BEST Places to Live list are in Central Ohio Congratulations to Westerville! I see Delaware and Columbus in the list of Ohio cities but don’t see Gahanna, Grandview, Hilliard, New Albany Powell, Upper Arlington or Worthington.  Or Lewis Center, but Lewis Center is a place but not a city. This "Westerville is the BEST Place to Live"  was originally published on another blog I write, ColumbusBestBlog.com it seemed like a natura...

Gahumbusville is in Franklin County.  Gahumbusville is just south of 161. Gahumbusville is in the 43230 ZIP code.  Not all of the 43230 ZIP is Gahumbusville, the biggest chunk is Gahanna. Gahumbusville is a very pretty area.  Blendon Woods is in the Gahumbusville area... or wait maybe Blendon Woods in Gahumbusany?   If you have a  Gahanna mailing address and live in the city of Columbus in the Westerville school district you live in  Gahumbusville.  I asked a man recently if he was the John Doe* in Bexley, Delaware, Groveport, Reynoldsburg, or Westerville.  He said he is the John Doe who lives in Gahanna... I thought the public records had failed me... or maybe his current home is in his wife's name.  Or.... Turns out in talking with Mr. Doe  further he lives in the City of Columbus, hi...
