The Ohio Historical Society has been working on a project about our recent history...  A lot of  the report about Ohio Modern focuses on Dayton, Ohio and it's suburbs... The "Ohio Historical Society" project defines the Ohio Modern period as 1940 through 1970.

The Dayton area was not in a vacuum by any stretch of the imagination, Ohio our recent history! '4.0 DESIGN TRENDS IN OHIO, 1940-1970' (link below) says "In Ohio, traditional architectural embellishments remained popular throughout the recent past period. Modern styles, such as International and Wrightian, were employed on a much more limited basis."

...part of that limited basis is in Worthington.  There are case studies of modern styles in the "4.0 DESIGN TRENDS IN OHIO, 1940-1970' including 4.2.2.1, a "Case study – Rush Creek, Worthington, Columbus"

On pages 9 to 11 of  4.0 DESIGN TRENDS IN OHIO, 1940-1970 (a .pdf) the Worthington Ohio Usonian project in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright is chronicled.  '4.2.2.1 Case study – Rush Creek, Worthington, Columbus' says says "Begun in 1956, Rush Creek Village has been recognized for its outstanding architectural quality."  Or 1955...  the photo above is the end of the sign as you enter Rush Creek Village on South St in Worthington.  

4.0 Design Trends in Ohio is just a small, small part of a huge project about Ohio's recent histoRush Creek Village signry in architecture, decorating styles, zoning, urban development, etc...
