Westerville is a northeastern suburb of the capital city of Columbus, located in central Ohio. The population is approximately 35,000. First settled in 1818 by Dutch immigrants, the town was named for Matthew Westervelt, an early settler who donated land for the construction of a Methodist church. It incorporated in 1858. Several historic homes in Westerville were stops on the Underground Railroad, including the Hanby House. Benjamin Russell Hanby is the author of several well-known songs, including the Christmas favorite, "Up On the Housetop." His home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is now a museum. Westerville was once known as the "Dry Capital of the World," due to its' 1859 town ordinance which forbade the sale of alcohol. Today, it's thriving as part of the Columbus metropolitan area, near all the prime attractions of the capital city. Among the places to visit include The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Wexner Center for the Arts, the Franklin Park Conservatory Botanical Gardens, and COSI (Center of Science and Industry.) Parents Magazine has named COSI one of the ten best science centers for families in the USA. The Ohio Historical Society is a 250,000-square-foot museum located just north of downtown Columbus, and includes Ohio Village, which is a replica of an Ohio town around the time of the Civil War. Columbus is also home to the Ohio State Fair, one of the largest state fairs in the country.
