Gahanna & New Albany

Cover (front)

This installment of "A Trip Around Columbus" takes us to the Northeast part of Franklin County. New Albany's original name was "Hope", when it was founded by William Yantis and Noble Landon in 1837. Gahanna comes from the Native American term "merging of the three creeks". This segment includes the neighborhood formerly known as Wonderland and Wexley, which was the launching pad for growth in New Albany behind Les Wexner.
