High Street in Old Worthington

by Maureen McCabe on August 10, 2011


The plaque on the building at 679 and 681 High Street in Worthington says “Worthington Hotel” and it was a hotel, a home, a newspaper office, a surveyors office, a funeral home and more.  Shops. It’s probably been a number of different shops over the years.  Most recently it was the Curio Cabinet and Christmas Village.

The plaque from the Worthington Historical Society on the Kilbourne Commercial Building, a historical building in a historical district says:

Worthington Hotel
The Sign of the Sun
Public Entertainment

“To friends both old and new accommodations are tendered as good as the best; should anyone doubt this,  he is respectfully requested to come and see.”  James Kilbourne Proprietor  December 1, 1845

1845 accommodations for travelers… since so many different uses.

In 2011,  679 High Street is going to be a toy store?  I am not keeping up.  I thought it was going to be an oil store.  Scented oils? Those plans did not go through last week I heard it is going to be a toy store.

681 High Street is going to be a real estate office.  The sign is up.  The new sign that says Real Living HER is up on the building at 681 High St. Worthington, Ohio 43085.

The office at 681 High St. Worthington, Ohio 43085  is going to be the official home of  ColumbusBestBlog.com  too.  Although ColumbusBestBlog.com  is not all real estate, it is part real estate and it needs an address, so this is it… it was a newspaper office, a surveyors office, it was a funeral home… why not a “blog”  or two… or three..
