Images of America: Around Worthington
by Robert W. McCormick

In the early 1800s, New England pioneers braved the Ohio wilderness and settled on a tract of frontier land in central Ohio; this settlement was to become Worthington. During the nineteenth century, Worthington was mainly a sleepy market village, providing necessities for the surrounding farms. In the early twentieth century, Worthington evolved from its quiet, small-town days to asuburb of the growing metropolis of Columbus. The area experienced dramatic growth after World War II created the present suburban city. Tracing WorthingtonÂ's dynamic history through time is especially significant now because the town is on the verge of celebrating its bicentennial (2003), which notably corresponds with Ohio's 200th anniversary of official statehood. A compilation of nearly 200 photographs gathered from such varied sources as the Worthington Historical Society, the National Archives, local businesses, and private citizens helps enrich and vary this collection. These photographs and insightful text offer a visual history that captures the true breadth of Worthington's past.
