Getting to know Dublin

History of Dublin, Ohio-reprinted from City of Dublin Webpage
Native Americans - Hopewell, Adenas, Delaware, Shawnee and Wyandot - were the first inhabitants of the countryside that was to become Dublin. Today's Dublin was originally part of 2,000 acres of land given to Lieutenant James Holt by the US Government as payment for service in the Revolutionary War.
After several real estate transactions, John Sells and his family purchased 400 acres of land along the Scioto River in the early 1800s. This area was platted as a village in 1810. Little did he realize that his Village of Dublin would develop into one of the most progressive communities in Central Ohio. Today, the site of Sells' original purchase is known as Historic Dublin. Through well-managed growth, Dublin has preserved its historic past, while enriching the quality of life within the community. Early 19th century architecture and dry limestone fences bordering its roads add to Historic Dublin's heritage. Many of its original buildings are listed in the National Register of Historical Places.
In the 1970s, Dublin was transformed from a rural village into a suburban business center, due largely to the completion of the I-270 outerbelt and development of the Muirfield Village Golf Club and residential community. The quality of Dublin's commercial construction was established early with the development of Metro Center, the headquarters of Ashland Chemical Company and the Midwestern Volkswagen complex. With rapid business and residential growth, Dublin officially became a city in August 1987.

When people call a place historic, what they often mean is quaint, a judgment based as much on aesthetics as it is on age and significance. So that’s why Dublin, known for its modern subdivisions and corporate campuses, isn’t the first place that jumps to mind when you think of historic Central Ohio communities. Yet a review of the National Register of Historic Places tells a different story. Dublin has 50 landmarks on the list, far more than any other Columbus suburb. (Canal Winchester, which easily tops Dublin in the charm factor, is second with 31.)

Herb Jones, the president of the Dublin Historical Society, lives in a 128-year-old frame home on South Riverview Street in the old village center of Dublin. He says when preservationists formed the society about 25 years ago, they lobbied to get important Dublin buildings and places on the register. “That just mushroomed,” says Jones, whose home is on the list. “It even carried over into Washington Township, which is the township that Dublin is in.”

Landmarks with Dublin addresses include an ancient Indian mound, a former blacksmith shop (now the home of a veterinary clinic), an old one-room schoolhouse and stone, brick and wood residences that once belonged to prominent Dublin citizens, including the family of John Sells, who founded Dublin nearly 200 years ago. Jones’s home is amid a cluster of historic houses along Riverview, which Sells laid out in 1810. Before that, the street was a major Indian path and frontier trail along the Scioto River from Portsmouth to Upper Sandusky. “There’s a lot of history here,” Jones says
