Some Westerville History

First settled around 1819, Westerville is named for the Westervelt family, who in 1836 donated land for the construction of a Methodist church. Westerville was incorporated in 1858 with a population of 275.

Before the Civil War, several homes in Westerville were stops on the Underground Railroad, including the historic Hanby House, one block from Otterbein University. Involved in the Underground Railroad while still a student there, Hanby went on to become a minister and composer who penned, among others, the Christmas song “Up on the Housetop.”

Westerville was once known as the “Dry Capital of the World.” Sale of alcohol in Westerville was banned by town ordinance in 1859. By the 1870’s, the so-called “Westville Whiskey Wars” broke out, with anti-temperance forces blowing up saloons in 1875 and 1879. Given Westerville’s nationwide reputation for temperance, the Anti-Saloon League relocated national headquarters in Westerville in 1909. In support of the Eighteenth Amendment, ratified in 1920, so many pamphlets were mailed from Westerville—40 tons each month—that Westerville was the smallest town in the USA to have a first class post office.
