What’s the Neighborhood Like?
Most of the homes in this area were built between 1909 and 1943. The homes, including Colonial Revival, Shingle-style, and Craftsman-style bungalows, are a mix of single and double units with a high homeowner occupancy rate along grassy boulevards, stone stanchions, and street furniture. The neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of its middle-class development.
Glen Echo Park, dedicated to the City of Columbus, Ohio, for “public park purpose forever” by a plat dated June 24, 1912, runs from the north end of Fourth Street southwest to Indianola Avenue and is commonly described as an urban oasis for residents. The steep wooden banks are covered naturalized native plants along a walkway that runs through the park along the creek.
