If you are looking for Bexley Ohio homes for sale, then it’s good to know a little history about your future town. Located in Franklin County, Bexley was established in 1908 by Lincoln Kilbourne, to honor his family roots in Bexley, London, England. Several years later two local villages decided to merge with the Lutheran community of Pleasant Ridge to create Capital University and Trinity Lutheran Seminary, adding to the town’s Lutheran-based founding community.
The creation of water and sewage lines for Camp Bushnell, an area designed to house recruits for the Spanish-American war, laid the framework for the later estate development that is now Bexley. This tiny community has now grown to a population of 14,102 residents as per the 2020 census.
