History

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. 

Neighborhoods

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. 

Shopping 

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. 

Dining

Near the border with German Village, Lindey’s is a Central Ohio favorite for fine dining. Zoe’s Café offers more casual fare, and there are dozens of cafés, juice bars, pizza joints, and more. 

Schools

Bexley is served by  Bexley City Schools, a highly-rated district serving 2300+ kids in 5 schools, with a 22 AP courses,  a 99.3% graduation rate, and a student/teacher ratio of 16:1.  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.

What’s special

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.
