    Old Beechwold designation can wait, association says

    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

    A group representing the Old Beechwold neighborhood association will not pursue a Columbus historic designation for the area.

    However, other residents are asking neighbors to sign an application to restore the boundaries for more than 130 homes, an effort some say could further split the neighborhood on the already-divisive issue.

    I grew up in Old Beechwold, and when asked “where do you live?”, I always replied “Old Beechwold”. “Where?” they asked.

    The thing is, unless you know where all the historic neighboorhoods are or are from the Clintonville area, you probably don’t know where Old Beechwold is. You probably don’t care ether.

    Anyways, I always said in response to my above statement, “Oh I mean, I live in Clintonville”. The person, “ohhh, I know where that is!”.

    Besides historic purposes, why should this matter? Of course Jason Janicakowsi is going to downplay it. It’s not important and waste of news..I swear Columbus news(in general), has nothing better to report.

    From the ends of the article:

    [Enas Lanham and her husband moved from Old Beechwold to Dublin’s Ballantrae neighborhood in 2002 after the Historic Resources Commission denied their request to install energy-efficient windows.

    “We felt it was not worth investing in a home that would always have this problem and decided to move instead,” she said.]

    What? That doesn’t make sense to me.

    In the old frontier days I believe the windows were made of greased paper. It had to stink in the summer. I would have moved also.

    In the old frontier days they grilled their greased paper windows on Memorial Day and used them like tortillas. They would put up new ones on Labor Day. Had the good people of Old Beechwold just followed the old ways….

    The Old Beechwold neighborhood in Clintonville is a step closer to regaining its historic designation. But not everyone who lives there is eager to have the Columbus City Council approve the measure, which got the nod this week from the city’s Historic Resources Commission.

    Historic or not? Dispute continues over Old Beechwold

    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

    The fight in Old Beechwold over whether the neighborhood should regain its historic status has become so bitterly divisive that longtime neighbors are shunning one another.

    “I’ve seen people I’ve lived with for 32 years who won’t speak to me,” Charles Kistler told Columbus City Council members during a public hearing yesterday evening.

    But they apparently didn’t have any problem selling the house. So I guess someone must have been OK with those windows.
