Columbus: Can you hear me now?

Worthington, Ohio to Columbus: "Can you hear me now?"  - May 23, 1881. That's 130 years ago*.

"Telephone communications between Worthington and Columbus were completed Saturday, May 23, 1881. "

According to page 16 in  "An Historical Sketch of Worthington, 1803-1953" a "Worthington Sesquicentennial Celebration Booklet"  on the Worthington Memory site, telephone communications were completed between Columbus and Worthington in 1881.

May 23, 1881 Telephone communications completed between Worthington and Columbus

Worthington in 1881 was a sleepy little village.

Old Worthington Village of Worthington signWorthington was still a village in 1953, when Worthington celebrated it's Sesquicentennial.   Colonial Hills was not annexed for a few more years... that's how Worthington grew to a city, since the Colonial Hills neighborhood in Sharon Township had more population than the Village of Worthington did. 

The Old Worthington neighborhood today is what the original Village of Worthington was when it was founded in 1803.
