About This Neighborhood:

The city was founded in 1803 by the Scioto Company led by James Kilbourne, who was later elected to the United States House of Representatives, and was named in honor of Thomas Worthington, future governor of Ohio. On February 20, 1808 the Worthington Academy was incorporated by the Ohio legislature and a brick building was constructed facing the northeast quadrant of the public square.

In 1866, the Bishop House was converted to the Union Hotel (Worthington Inn) by the Lewis family. In 1931, the only Roman Catholic pontifical college outside of Italy, the Pontifical College Josephinum relocated just north of Worthington, where it exists today. The Worthington Arts Council sponsors arts-related activities, shows and events throughout the year. Old Worthington is host to many events for all ages and interests throughout the year.

Market Day features arts and crafts, pancake breakfasts and lots of outdoor fun. During Worthington’s Farmers’ Markets, farmers bring their fresh produce, plants and crafts out to the sidewalk sale every Saturday morning in May through October.
