The Village

The German Village is a unique island of history within the surrounding urban landscape of Columbus, Ohio. The 233 acres has been preserved to a historically inspired oasis with cobblestone streets, stores, restaurants and residential homes. A window of time gazing to the history when the German immigrants settled the neighborhood in the nineteenth century. Many years later, in the 1960's an activist historian saw the loveliness of the rich history and petitioned to have the neighborhood restored. This sought after pedestrian neighborhood creates an ambiance which cannot be found elsewhere and visitors to the German Guesthouse can enjoy the surrounding beauty with ease.

The German Village Society was started one Sunday afternoon by Frank Fetch. Hosting an open house within the neighborhood featuring a location that he had been elemental in restoring, he invited signatures of the attendees to sign up to form a preservation group for the purpose of saving the neighborhood. Nearly two decades of progress later, the German Village was named with national recognition of leading historical neighborhoods. Today it is one of the most sought after locals to live.
