Worthington 1967

by Maureen McCabe on December 1, 2009

“1967 I-270 and Rt 23 interchange, looking north”   Clicking on the photo will take you to the photo on Flickr.

An aerial view of the newly built (I believe) 270 interchange.

The Real Living HER (HER REALTORS® at the time?) office would be on the very bottom I believe. Just right of High Street, we sit back behind the National City Bank, up a long driveway I believe our building was built in the 1970′s.

Flickr is a great place to learn about the history of the area.  There was a little airstrip where the Crosswoods area is now.

Yes, a local chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Assn (typically homebuilt aircraft) had a small hangar and dirt strip. Looking west from it you could see Josephinum steeple. A favorite photo shows my husband at the strip launching a model airplane he designed. The guys with real planes were very accomodating to modelers and we spent many summer evenings flying there.

Ginni

Thanks.

I can’t see the Josephinum in this photo really, but I know it is there.

Go to Flickr for some great photos of Worthington. Dok1 who is Don O’Brien has shared a lot of photos of Worthington from the 30′s and 40′s which are a lot of fun to see. He grew up on W. Wilson Bridge Road and in one of his pictures I am sure I see the Josephinum steeple. Without 270 in the way you’d see it standing down at Wilson Bridge Rd.
