A neighborhood with a bad reputation is seeing a rebirth. Franklinton is an area just west of downtown Columbus. For years, the area has been thought of as run down, but it’s now becoming a location of news development.
For the first time in years, the neighborhood is rebuilding, and several local and state agencies are helping to rehabilitate houses and build new ones.
“People interested in moving here are surprised by the quality of houses you can get out here and quality of people out here,” said Jim Sweeney, of Franklinton Development Association.
