(Past & Present)

 




The following list contains the names of "Populated Places" and Post Offices (PO) in Franklin County that are either unincorporated, or no longer exist.  Some communities have been swallowed up by larger cities like Columbus, Reynoldsburg, Worthington and others.  Underlined names are linked to additional information.  Over the coming months I will attempt to learn more about the others and post the information on this page.

Occasionally I am asked something along the lines of, "My great-grandfather's death certificate gives his place of death as ______ (you fill in the blank) in Franklin County.  Can you tell me where that is?"  One possible answer can be found in the list below.  It's possible that the family's mail was delivered at a post office that was established at a particular spot, usually in an area with at least a few businesses, or a cluster of homes.  In many cases the tiny community dissolved when the post office was closed and mail sent to another post office.  In some places the community remained, but never formed a governing body, thus remaining unincorporated.

Locations listed below that are preceded by an asterisk (*) no longer exist and their exact location has, in many instances, been lost.
