Olde Towne is one of the largest historic neighborhoods in the city. Located adjacent to Downtown Columbus, Olde Towne is just footsteps away from sophisticated shopping, churches, schools, and with easy access to freeways and Greater Columbus.
Olde Towne was one of the first neighborhoods of Columbus. More than a thousand homes, some built as early as the 1830s, represent over 50 architectural styles. These were the homes of industry barons, bankers, teachers, architects, mayors, judges, and legislators who shaped our city’s future.
Today, the population is equally inclusive. Professionals, tradespeople, artisans, students and executives; singles, couples and families; homeowners and renters; people of all colors, backgrounds, lifestyles and incomes make Olde Towne home.
Each spring a Tour of Renovation and Restoration is featured on the third Sunday of May. This tour highlights rehabilitations in progress as well as completed renovations and gardens. During the first weekend in December, the Victorian Holiday Tour showcases the diverse celebrations of the season with several fully-decorated homes.
