German Village, Columbus, Ohio, USA
German Village, Columbus, Ohio, USA German Village is a historic neighborhood just south of downtown Columbus, Ohio. It was settled by a large number of German immigrants in the mid 1800s, who at one time comprised as much as a third of the population of the entire city. On December 30, 1974, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. On November 28, 1980, its boundaries were increased. In 1796, Congress appropriated the Refugee Lands for individuals who had supported the Colonial cause in the American Revolution. By 1802, an American Revolution veteran named John McGowan claimed 328 acres, most of what would become the German Village. As German immigrants arrived, McGowan sold tracts of land to them. By 1814, the German Village found its roots, originally called "die alte sud ende" (the old south end), and German immigrants contributed to building the first statehouse. By 1830, massive German immigration to the city had occurred. The most influential German newspaper in 1843 was "Der Westbote". Many would serve in the American Civil War, thus gaining the universal respect of the local citizens. By 1865, one-third of Columbus's population was German and the community was flourishing. They built up the local neighborhood, including many businesses, schools, and churches. The schools were so superior that English-speaking residents of Columbus chose to attend them. German-American George Karb would become mayor of the city, twice, at the end of the 19th century, and again in the early 20th The area was in serious decline throughout the first half of the 20th century, however, due to anti-German sentiment during World War I. This was sparked with the sinking of the Lusitania by Germany, which claimed to have killed innocent women and children. The media used this to demonize Germany and German-Americans. The Germans claimed it was transporting weapons in a war zone, which the British and American governments denied. In 2008, however, millions of rounds of ammunition were found at the wreckage of the ship. What ensued was the teaching of German in public schools being banned, and German textbooks burned. German street names were changed, and Schiller Park was renamed Washington Park. The anti-German sentiment fueled by the media was so bad that in 1918 German books were burned on Broad St., and at the foot of the Schiller statue. Despite the hatred, the German-American community would produce Columbus's finest war hero, and one of America's, from World War 1, Captain Eddie Rickenbacker, for whom Rickenbacker International Airport in southern Columbus is named. Further decline occurred later due to the closing of the local breweries during Prohibition, another response to the anti-German sentiment. After the war, the south end was zoned for manufacturing, leading to the erosion of the area's residential feel. In World War Two, the street car tracks and wrought iron fences were confiscated for the war effort. By the 1950s, the area had become a slum. The city then demolished one-third of the neighborhood.Columbus Ohio Girl
