History & History Related Items

Worthington history:

"In 1802, a group of Connecticut men led by Colonel James Kilbourne formed the Scioto Land Company to purchase 16,000 acres of land in Ohio for $1.25 an acre. Having carefully chosen high fertile land, they planned a town with a village green at its center; provided 100 acres of land each to support a school and a church, and land in town to build them on.

Families who settled this land in Ohio during 1803 and 1804 became the nucleus of a new town that retained its New England flavor in the Ohio wilderness. In the brand new State of Ohio, Worthington became a business and manufaturing center. Many homes and buildings still stand and are in use today. Many have stories to tell about Worthington's history and architecture."
