German Village Meeting Haus

Court overturns tax-exempt status By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers The German Village Society must return to the Ohio Board of Tax Appeals to seek tax-exempt status for the Meeting Haus. The Ohio Supreme Court last week overturned a decision by the board of tax appeals that granted a property-tax exemption to the facility, 588 S. Third St.

The ruling gives Columbus City Schools, which stands to gain a substantial portion of the property-tax money, the opportunity to weigh in on the matter. At issue is the society’s failure to notify the school board of its decision to appeal a tax commissioner’s ruling denying the exemption. Furthermore, the board of tax appeals erred when it did not properly notify the school board of

the existence of the appeal, the court said. The GVS filed for exemption of the property taxes in 2003, which would have been retroactive to 2000. The tax commissioner in August 2006 denied the society’s application, a decision that was directly appealed to the board of tax appeals. The board of tax appeals approved the tax exemption in 2009, meaning all

taxes paid since 2000 were reimbursed to the society. The GVS purchased the property in 1987 and, after a major renovation project, moved permanently into the building in 1991. The tax savings since the exemption have averaged $17,000 per year, said David O’Neil, spokesman for the Franklin County Auditor Clarence Mingo. Last year, the society saved

$23,917 in property taxes, based on the property’s current valuation of $891,300, O’Neil said. Jim Hopple, a member of the GVS board of trustees, said the society has set aside money because of the legal dispute. “It would not be a big hit for the society because we have not spent the money,” he said.

HAUS UND GARTEN TOUR

Open Civic Center Drive should offer better view of fireworks By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

(Right) Ashley Meyer and John Wyatt of German Village explore the patio of Jones’ home, which was one of 13 stops on the annual tour.

Many spectators at the 31st annual Red, White & Boom will have a waterfront view for the fireworks display. For the past three years, construction has limited access to a good portion of land along the Scioto River. Now, the city has opened Civic Center Drive from Broad Street to Main Street. “It’s one of the best viewing areas of the city to watch the fireworks. It’s right across the river,” said Mike Collins, executive director of Red, White & Boom. Bicentennial Park and the Scioto Mile promenade won’t open until next week, he said. The city is expecting half-a-million people at the fireworks display, set for 10 p.m. July 1. The number of food vendors — representing a variety of cuisines — has increased by about 15 percent, which is expected to eliminate long lines, Collins said. Youngsters in grades 8-12 will participate in an inaugural talent contest, to be held from 2 to 4 p.m. in Genoa Park on the west side of the river near COSI. A committee reviewed dozens of tapes to pick the contest finalists, who will be asked to sing a patriotic song. Many traditional activities will return this year, including the Taste of Boom, featuring samples from about a dozen restaurants in the Arena District. There will be a nominal fee for each dish. Beer sales will be offered. There also will be live entertainment in the Arena District, with bands performing at both stages in the area. The children’s area will open at noon on the west side of Neil Avenue between Long and Spring streets. See FIREWORKS, page A3

Historical New shop features premium coffee, chocolates society plans eventful July By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers

A new store offering artisan chocolates and premium coffees is expected to open in German Village the first week of July. Winans Fine Chocolates & Coffees is set to take over a 1,000-square-foot space at 897 S. Third St., at the corner of Whittier Street. Jason and Brittany Bainum of Gahanna are opening the store with Joe Reiser and Laurie Winans Reiser, who own the Piqua-based business. The Bainums said they were impressed by the goods made by Winans, which has five stores in the greater Dayton market. See NEW SHOP, page A2

By GARY SEMAN JR. ThisWeek Community Newspapers The Ohio Historical Society is planning a July like no other. Kicking things off July 1, the historical society will unveil four new exhibits that underscore the organization’s new motto: “Let’s Explore Ohio.” It’s all in an effort to attract a wider audience to the historical society, which is celebrating its 126th anniversary this year, said Jane Mason, director of marketing and communications for the organization.

Winans Fine Chocolates & Coffees co-owners (from left) Jason and Brittany Bainum and Laurie Winans Reiser and Joe Reiser stand outside their new shop at 897 S. Third St. in German Village. The shop, which will specialize in handcrafted chocolates and craft coffees, is expected to open in July.

NEW SHOP Continued from page A1 “That’s the main thing: You have to believe in the product,” Jason Bainum said. Added Brittany Bainum: “It’s delicious. And it’s nice to know it comes from Ohio.” The Winans shop will carry a full line of coffee drinks — espressos, lattes, cappuccinos and similar beverages — as well as handcrafted chocolates and some baked goods, such as scones, cupcakes and cookies. Seating will be available for about a dozen inside and on the patio. Coffee beans, which come from a variety of sources across the globe, are roasted at the Piqua site. All chocolates, as well as baked items, are prepared at the same facility. Reiser said the company was founded 50 years ago by his father-in-law, Max Winans, a third-generation baker who later created chocolates. The Columbus menu will feature a traditional line of chocolates, as well as truffles, caramels and specialty confections. “You name it — with chocolate, we do it,” he said. Winans is a craft-coffee roaster, producing small batches at a time, Reiser said. On a related note, the company recently purchased a cacao farm in Honduras, where coffee and cacao, the bean used to make chocolate, will be grown. Reiser said he expects the

first harvest in two-and-a-half years. When he purchased the company 18 years ago from his father-in-law, Reiser said he intended to move the operations to Columbus, but decided to stay in Piqua. “Columbus has always been on our radar,” he said. The newest store is a result of the friendship he formed with Jason Bainum while the two were working at the Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce. Bainum said he was impressed by Winans’ strong following, as well as its business model. “(Reiser) knows what he’s doing,” Bainum said. The concept seemed like an ideal fit for German Village, with its pedestrian-oriented denizens, boutique shops and strong sense of community, Bainum said. “It’s a neat area,” he said. “It’s just a very vibrant neighborhood and one that has a lot of tradition.” The neighborhood has no shortage of coffee shops — German Village Coffee Shop, Cup O’ Joe/MoJoe Lounge and Starbucks — but it’s been without a dedicated chocolatier since Yosick’s Artisan Chocolates closed its doors in December. gseman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Coming off a four-month renovation, the historical society has reconfigured the building’s entrance, which is now located off the first-level parking lot, Mason said. Part of the project included the removal of walls and brightening up the exterior, she said. The exhibit floor is right off the lobby. “We have put together this fantastic program in order to truly engage of the people of Ohio, to welcome them into this new space,” Mason said. “And having these things all at once will make it a spectacular experience.” The new exhibits are: • “The American Soldier: A Photographic Tribute, from the Civil War to Iraq” (part of a traveling exhibit, on display through Dec. 30). • “Over Here, Over There: Ohioans in Times of War.”

COURT

• “Follow the Flag.” • “Connecting to Your History.” Part of the historical society’s greater mission is to install more interactive, bolder displays and put people in touch with historical objects, Mason said. “I think that like in any industry, there’s innovation on how you communicate,” she said. “And our prior exhibits were fantastic for the era and thinking at the time. Now the thinking is to embrace and honor and acknowledge the visitor. It makes the history more relevant.” The other big item on the agenda is the Glorious Fourth celebration, to be held from noon to 5 p.m. Monday, July 4. Ohio Village, the model 19thcentury settlement adjacent to the main property, will host such activities as the “Grand Procession,” a parade in which spectators are encouraged to join, as well as a concert by the Ohio

Village Singers, a community dance and a pie-eating contest. In addition, there will be a vintage “base ball” game by the Ohio Village Muffins. Admission to the event is $12 for adults ($10 for historical society members), $9 for children between the ages of 6 and 12 ($7 for society members) and free for children 5 and under. Admission to the Ohio History Center is free with admission. “Through the sacrifices, courage and patriotism of Americans, and especially the American military, we are able to celebrate our freedoms every Fourth of July,” said Burt Logan, executive director of the historical society. “We invite everyone to come to the Ohio Village for the Glorious Fourth to celebrate these freedoms with us and to enjoy our patriotic exhibits in the Ohio History Center.”

Continued from page A1 Hopple contends the Meeting Haus deserves tax-exempt status because of the charitable nature of the organization. It is unclear when the board of tax appeals will hear the appeal, he said. “I’m really looking forward to the fact that this thing is coming to a resolution because we would really like to understand what we must pay and what we don’t,” said Roy Bieber, treasurer of the GVS board of trustees. “Instead of putting this into the special savings account, we would like to put this money toward the mission of the German Village Society — preservation, education, all the good things we do.” gseman@thisweeknews.com www.ThisWeekNews.com

Village notebook

Fourth of July has special history in German Village The Fourth of July is upon us and, as luck would have it, the South End has some history when it comes to this particular holiday. Some history is direct, some a little more roundabout. Regardless of the size of the celebration, what counts most is that our neighborhood forefathers were proud to be newly American and thrilled to celebrate the festivities in their new country. As villagers can boast today, these early residents knew how to throw a party.

Schiller Park has been (and shall always be!) the collective backyard and public gathering space JODY for villagers. GRAICHEN In its earliest days, much like today, it provided wide-open space in a neighborhood known for its density. Originally called Stewart’s Grove, the park served

as a natural spot for festivities of just about any kind. In 1830, Stewart’s Grove hosted the first documented Fourth of July celebration in Columbus. I don’t know much about the celebration, but I know it occurred and I trust it was well-attended, though the area was sparsely populated. Over the next 60 years, the park was purchased by the city of Columbus, hosted German See VILLAGE, page A6

Guest column

Sometimes it takes a long trip to appreciate home My wife, Dee, and I recently returned from a trip to Bellingham, Wash., and Vancouver, British Columbia. This trip was wonderful for many reasons, and it reminded me of how much I enjoy living in Merion Village. The Pacific Northwest is beautiful. I had never been there before. It has stunning mountains and water, nature at her best. Bellingham is a charming small city with many thriving local businesses and cool repurposed buildings. It is bursting with creativity. Vancouver is a visually stunning large city that celebrates its diversity and has many wonderful parks and gardens and locally owned restaurants. The quality of life in these two cities is tremendous. Back home, as I drove around running some errands, I was reminded about the beauty, character and diversity of my own neighborhood. Driving from my house, down Hanford and Jaeger streets, past independently owned, thriving restaurants on Thurman Avenue and past Schiller Park’s great trees to Giant Eagle, even at night, is a visual treat. Getting reacquainted with home, looking at our own houses, historic schools, parks and gardens, I found myself saying, “Home is good, too.” No, we don’t have the water and mountains of Vancouver, but we do have a lot of our own unique charm.

Merion Village has special places, including Moeller Park and neighboring Schiller Park, and a BOB bigger park neighbor, a LEIGHTY former brownfield that now celebrates nature and recreation: the young and growing Scioto Audubon Metro Park. Merion Village has special peo-

ple, too. Catching up recently with Sunday’s Dispatch, I saw the wonderful and much-deserved recognition of Merion Village residents Elton Wilson and Carl Eckart, who are celebrating an amazing 50 years together. Congratulations, Elton and Carl! As I write this, I am looking at a proof of our new poster for our 12th annual Merion Village Garden Tour on July 10 and a video of 2010 garden tour highlights on our website, and I am See LEIGHTY, page A6

singing festivals, served as a mustering location for men going off to fight the Mexican-American War and continued to serve, on an everyday basis, as a gathering spot for casual get-togethers and family outings. It was during this time that the German community grew in affluence and gained political, business and financial prestige. The Suabian Society, a German men’s club, was instrumental in raising funds to purchase a statue to honor a fellow countryman, noted dramatist and globally known Renaissance man Friedrich von Schiller. Schiller lived from 1759 to 1805 and was from the very region of Germany that so many Columbus Germans had emigrated. On July 4, 1891, the Schiller statue was placed in the park by the prominent German community. It was universally loved, repeatedly captured by artists and a source of great pride for the hard-working residents living in Columbus’ South End. (Sound familiar?) As a way of thanking the German community for the gift of the Schiller statue, the city of Columbus renamed the park. City Park became Schiller Park in 1905. In June of that year, a celebration commemorating Schiller’s death in 1805 began at Washington and Broad streets and 5,000 people marched to the newly renamed park for a day of festivities. Regional and national pride, a growing sense of community and the simple yet complex joy of being American drove early Columbus Germans to celebrate their new home while showing appreciation for their German heritage. In many ways, this was the same “today and yesterday” issue villagers face today. Villagers are good at living for the moment, acknowledging

each day’s treasures or hardships and existing very much in the now — all while paying tribute to yesterday by maintaining homes built more than 100 years ago and accepting that they are the caretakers of these homes, just as future homeowners will be. Villagers are contemporary and yet classic, vintage and historic. Villagers are absolutely 21st century (and maybe beyond) as they sip coffee outside of buildings constructed in the 19th century. Villagers walk brick streets laid by former residents 10 decades ago and fight to maintain those same streets so future residents can do the same. Like the earliest residents before us, we are among the best our city has to offer, and we are staunchly proud of both our heritage and our current status. We know how to recognize greatness, both large and small (Did you remember to attend the Haus und Garten Tour volunteer appreciation supper?) and know how to celebrate all the good that comes our way. That’s why, on this Fourth of July, you will likely hear parties throughout the streets and alleys of German Village as residents honor the nation’s independence while sharing good times, kindred spirits and beautiful spaces

with their neighbors. If you are in Schiller Park doing the very same, know that almost 200 years ago, the city’s celebration of the Fourth of July was right where you stand, and our neighborhood really has seen it all along the way. Jody Graichen is director of historic preservation programs for the German Village Society.
