Westerville Overview

Westerville, OH is a city split between Franklin and Delaware counties and is the largest suburb of Columbus, OH. Westerville was first settled around 1810 and officially incorporated in August 1858. In the early days before the town's incorporation, Westerville was connected to Columbus by a plank road with a toll of ten cents.

Throughout the Antebellum era, several homes in Westerville were stations on the Underground Railroad. Among these is the Hanby House. Benjamin Russell Hanby went on to write many familiar hymns and songs, among them the Christmas favorite "Up On The Housetop".
