Description 

In 1798, a settlement named Franklinton sprouted up on the west bank of the Scioto River, just below the Olentangy River. The Ohio legislature accepted a proposal in 1812 for the high bank east of the Scioto River, across the river from Franklinton, to be the site of the capital city. The location was given the name Columbus, even though it had no inhabitants at the time. Columbus grew quickly and became the county seat.
