Olentangy Hills is ithe City of Worthington, off W. Wilson Bridge Road.   The Olentany Hills neighborhood was platted in the late 1960's. This area of single family homes is a little newer than the Worthington Estates neighborhood, which is south of Olentangy Hills.

Reading the history of the neighborhood in Jennie McCormick's 'Worthington Neighborhoods' book published by the Worthington Historical Society, this farmland in the 1960s was know as the Antrim Farm.  The Antrim family only owned the land since 1934.  The farmland had been owned by Lemuel Kilbourn (McCormick has the Kilbourne name without the e, I hear both are acceptable!) in 1804.  Worthington and parts adjacent saw their first settlers from the east coast in 1803.   Kilbourn operated a sawmill and a gristmill at the Olentangy River at the site.   The Wilson family operated the mills early on and "Worthington Neighborhoods" says the deed when Everett Antrim purchased the land referred to what we know as W. Wilson Bridge Road as Mill Road.

Planned Communities developed Olentangy Hills and what we now know as Worthington Mall.   Wilson Bridge Road was moved south of the shopping center.

According to McCormick's book, in Olentangy Hills  "Most owners selected their own builders although some were built on speculation. Most of the floor plans were for spacious two-story family homes in a variety of architectural styles."  Like many Central Ohio neighborhoods, the majority of homes are two story but there are also split levels and one story floor plans that were built in Worthington's Olentangy Hills neighborhood.  The house pictured is down on the cul-de-sac on Greenglade, a split built as I recall about 1972.

Worthington's Olentangy Hills neighborhood has easy access to 270, 315, Worthington Mall including the Kroger Grocery Store, Worthington schools and the nearby Olentangy River parklands.
