If you live in Columbus, then chances are pretty good that you already consider German Village to be a great neighborhood. Today, the American Planning Association (APA) confirms what we already knew with the designation of German Village as one of the “10 Great Neighborhoods” in the 2011 edition of the organization’s Great Places in America Program.
“German Village’s success is due, in part, to its ability to strike that intricate balance between contemporary function and historic integrity,” said APA CEO Paul Farmer.
Proof of that historic integrity lies with the hundreds of brick houses in the neighborhood that are immaculately maintained by homeowners. Our At Home series has profiled five German Village residences, which you can read about here, here, here, here and here.
The neighborhood is well known for historic Columbus institutions such as Schmidt’s Sausage Haus, The Book Loft, and Schiller Park. German Village is also a great dining destination with favorites old and new, such as Katzinger’s Delicatessen, Harvest Pizzaria and Bakery Gingham.
“The energy in here comes both from the mix of uses one sees and the sense of camaraderie one feels walking these brick streets,” said Farmer. “This modest neighborhood is defined not by any one iconic structure but by the way in which its unpretentious brick buildings and the spaces between them work together, creating a sense of place that is genuine.”
More information about the Great Places designation can be found at www.planning.org/greatplaces.

Tea is for Historic Preservation

The highlight of Tea43206 will be a hat contest judged by David Thielebeule, Accessories Director for Allure magazine. A silent auction will feature a purse created by German Village artist Sandy Kight, a tennis racket signed by US Open winner Andy Roddick, a framed original cartoon by German Village resident Jeff Stahler, a hat donated by NYC milliner and Chanel apprentice Gigi Burris and also a hat from Granville Millinery Company’s Amy Hamilton.
Other auction items include gift certificates to Market Blooms and German Village Guest House, massages and spa items from Betsy Cornell, LMT, and bottles of exclusive Oregon Pinot and Veuve Clicquot wines, with more items coming in daily. Surprise celebrity guests will be present for photo opportunities with guests. Guests will be feted with teas, wine, sweet and savory hors d’oeuvres and pastries. All men and women are encouraged to wear festive garden party attire and fabulous hats!
“This event is an exciting new addition to the German Village Society’s calendar because it benefits historic preservation, the core of our mission, and will also be great fun which is also a part of the German Village Society,” said Mike Yarbrough, President, German Village Society Board.
Proceeds of the event will be used for items currently not covered by the German Village Society historic preservation budget such as comprehensive signage, publishing historic preservation education materials, and archive management.
Pre-sale tickets are available at the German Village Meeting Haus 588 S Third St, Columbus 43215 or online at GermanVillage.com; $50 for German Village Society members and $60 for non-members. The event will be held rain or shine.
