Westerville Real Estate

Westerville

  • Westerville is rich in history—its beginnings traced to 1806 when a Revolutionary War veteran settled along Alum Creek.  Westerville was named for New York natives Matthew and Peter Westervelt who arrived around 1814. One of the oldest homes still standing was built in 1820 and is still occupied.  It is just one of many buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.  It is the home of Otterbein University, established in 1847.  Also it was the birthplace of the Womens’ Christian Temperance Union.   Westerville has all the big town amenities while maintaining a small town image.  The 96,000 sq. ft. Community Center features year-round activities—a leisure pool, competition pool, running track and gymnasium.  It also has a fitness room and an aerobics room, a climbing wall, youth game room and indoor playground and much more.  Beautiful housing developments, numerous medical facilities, large shopping malls, churches and St. Ann’s Hospital surround historic Westerville.  Its Up-town area boasts many unique shops and restaurants.  Westerville’s highly rated schools include sixteen elementary, four middle, and three high schools.  Most of these have five-star ratings by parents.   Acres of parks offer miles of exquisite scenery and biking and walking trails.  Hoover Reservoir abuts the eastern border of the town, where one can take advantage of small boating opportunities and watch regattas in the summertime.  The Polaris and Easton Shopping Malls are minutes away.  It is conveniently located next to Outerbelt I-270, and is just 11 miles from downtown Columbus.
