Franklinton, established in 1797, is the oldest settlement in Central Ohio. Rich in history, Franklinton has become a community of progress,  innovation and exciting potential. We are a neighborhood proudly celebrating the old and the new, side by side!

Columbus City Council established area Commissions in the early 1970s to act as a liaison between neighborhood groups, property owners, residents, developers and city officials. The Franklinton Area Commission has been active for much of that history and is now very involved in various aspects of the renaissance that is changing our neighborhood.
