Located just east of downtown Columbus, Bexley was named for a town in England, and incorporated in 1908. Over the years, Bexley has served as a staging ground for the Spanish American War, the site of the Governor’s mansion, and is the home of the Columbus School for Girls, a private school using mansions as the first campus buildings.
Bexley was once a wealthy bedroom community of downtown Columbus, Ohio. Now it holds a mixture of mansions, older family homes, and condos. Tree-lined streets and beautiful parks are everywhere; this is the urban suburb of Columbus! It now offers an attractive mixture of big city amenities and small town friendliness.
Arts & Culture
Franklin Park Conservatory bestows not only diverse biomes within its greenhouses, but classes in gardening, canning, glass blowing, and more. The Columbus Museum of Art is just a short drive away, CAPA theatres are nearby, and there are galleries aplenty in Bexley proper.
An older, charming shopping district offers fun boutiques and shops, while the Columbus core offers a thriving downtown shopping experience. Major malls are just minutes away, too.

If you’re looking for private schools, the city boasts several: Columbus School for Girls, St. Charles Preparatory School, Capital University, Bexley Hall Episcopal seminary, and Trinity Lutheran Seminary.
Bexley is a lovely neighborhood with older, gracious homes which appeal to devotees of mixed-architecture and turn-of-the century architecture. Friendly, welcoming, and close to the downtown area, Bexley is a wonderful example of the way close-to-downtown suburbs can offer the peace, quiet and beauty of a town typically further from the action, while still offering the big city lights and entertainment choices.
