Woodland Park is one of Columbus’ first planned neighborhoods, named for Woodland Avenue in 1899. In the early 1900’s Woodland Park was boasted about as it offered rare amenities (for the times) such as paved sidewalks, sewage, and electricity. One of the first homes built in Woodland Park was that of John Connors, a railroad salesman in 1909. Howell and Thomas, an architecture firm, began developing prominent homes in the area primarily between 1908 and 1930. Throughout the 20th century Woodland Park made a transition from a not so, to a very diverse neighborhood which has helped it to develop into what it is today.
