German Village - A Place With History

As its name implies, the historic neighborhood of German Village, was founded by a large number of German immigrants in the late 19th century. Originally called "Die Alte Sud Ende" (the Old South End), by 1830 the community had attracted thousands of German immigrants, many of whom would serve in the Civil War, endearing them to the local citizens of Columbus. By 1865, one-third of the city’s population was German—they built local businesses, churches and schools, including the historic St. Mary’s Catholic Church , erected in 1865, which features a 197-foot steeple.

German Village today is a community of charming homes ranging from cozy bungalows to Victorian brick mansions. Located south of I-70 in downtown Columbus, German Village attracts visitors to its quaint shops and restaurants, history museum, The Actors Theater of Columbus and Schiller Park. The Annual German Village Haus und Garten Tour is held on the last Sunday in June. German Village is the first Ohio neighborhood to be designated as a “Preserve America Community’ by the White House and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

German Village declined in the first half of the 20th century partly due to anti-German sentiment during World War I. Concerned citizens managed to save much of its historic architecture from demolition in the 1960s by creating the German Village Commission and by getting the area listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. More than 1,600 buildings have been restored since 1960 and today, German Village is the largest privately funded historic district on the National Register of Historic Places.

Experience German Village

German Village is a great place to stroll, admiring the historic architecture, brick-paved streets and unique shops and restaurants. Residents are proud of their beautiful parks including Schiller Park, named for the German poet Frederick von Schiller and featuring a bronze statue of him which was dedicated in 1891. The park is the site of the Schiller Park Recreation Facility, which offers classes for children and adults. Tiny 0.2- acre Frank Fetch Park evokes an Old World atmosphere with its gas lights, hanging baskets, brick walkways, and wrought iron fencing. The Grace Highfield Memorial Garden, named for a beloved German Village resident, features 77 varieties of hostas as well as boxwood and other shade-loving plants.

South Third Street is German Village’s commercial center with many locally owned restaurants including Katzinger’s Delicatessen and Barcelona restaurant. It is also home to the city-block long The Book Loft, Caterina European Housewares and Franklin Art Glass Studios, as well as numerous art galleries.
