Clintonville is a historic, urban neighborhood in north-central Columbus that has grown to include some of the neighboring Beechwold and Worthington neighborhoods. Its borders are defined by Glen Echo Creek on the south, railroad tracks eastward from there, Olentangy River westward from there up until Cooke Road at which point it becomes Clintonville again all way back around Lorain Avenue where you can find its southernmost border with Ohio State University’s campus for added protection against development.
Clintonville is a charming area north of Columbus, Ohio. It was founded by Continental Army soldiers who were given land in lieu of pensions and it served as an Underground Railroad stop during the Civil War. By 1900 Clinton Township had become popular with summer residents from nearby university towns due to its close proximity to downtown Columbus.
Today, the area is very popular for a diverse group of residents that enjoy the small-town feel, while still being so close to both the Ohio State University campus and downtown Columbus. The neighborhood has also seen some recent revitalizations to its main retail centers on the High St corridor.
