Welcome to Westerville

Dry \'drī\ adjective 1. Lacking moisture 2. Lacking interest or stimulation, warmth or emotion 3. Opposed to or prohibiting the sale of alcoholic liquor for human consumption

C

an you believe it? Westerville, Ohio was once known as the “Dry Capital of the World?” Really? Yep. Our Temperance history is well documented, even by the likes of Ken Burns in his public television documentary Prohibition. Burns himself visited our Anti-Saloon League Museum and his researchers spent two years pouring over the league’s documents housed there. Fast-forward to 2006, when beer was served in Uptown Westerville for the first time since 1933. Thanks to new laws, new hotels, new technology and plenty for all ages to see and do, Westerville is Anything but Dry.

Westerville’s small-town feel is genuine. A walk through our Uptown Shopping District is a definite throwback to days-gone-by, with buildings dating back to the 1860s, 1870s and 1880s. Once you step inside, you find modern boutiques, hip eateries and home décor to fit everyone’s style. You’ll

even find antiques, a retro shop with LPs and a deli with a microbrewery in the back to keep the memories of the speakeasy alive. Look outside of Uptown and you’ll find 6,000 acres of parkland, including city parks, metro parks and Hoover Reservoir, owned by the City of Columbus, and 44 miles of leisure trails. Otterbein University is just west of Uptown and is a nationally recognized liberal arts university. Its STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) innovation center, The Point, is a stone’s throw from the City of Westerville’s stateof-the-art WeConnect Data Center,

1858: Westerville incorporated, passes an ordinance banning the sale of “beer, wine or spirituous liquors,” with the exception of liquor for medicinal purposes as prescribed by a physician.

1875: Henry Corbin opens a saloon in Westerville. It is dynamited by unknown persons.

4

1913: ASL marches on Washington and proposes 18th Amendment to the Constitution to enact Prohibition.

1879: Corbin tries a new location. Dynamite destroys the building again. Incidents dubbed the Whiskey Wars.

1909: The Anti-Saloon League of America moves headquarters and printing company to Westerville. City earns its nickname, “Dry Capital of the World.” Timeline Sources: http://www.westervillelibrary.org/antisaloon-why-westerville http://www.westervillelibrary.org/antisaloon-history https://www.history.com/topics/roaring-twenties/prohibition

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socioeconomic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer belongs to all Americans and is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens to celebrate our most beloved freedom; the freedom to humbly come before God and seek His guidance in prayer. www.warmwesterville. org

By Larry Coen and David Crane. Set in the 1930s, this comedy tells the story of two brothers who go to the Arizona desert to be extras in a huge Hollywood Biblical epic. Before you know it, Phil is directing the movie, and Benny is starring in it. To complicate matters further they both fall in love with the same woman. Suitable for audiences of all ages. Some moderately strong language, however.
