Category:German Village (Columbus, Ohio)
English: German Village is a historic neighborhood just south of Downtown Columbus, Ohio. It was settled by a large number of German immigrants in the mid-19th century, who at one time comprised as much as a third of the population of the entire city. It has a commercial strip mainly centered along Third Street, with mostly locally owned restaurants—such as Katzinger's Delicatessen—and the 32-room Book Loft bookstore, as well as the tall-steepled St. Mary Catholic Church constructed in 1868. The village is mostly a residential neighborhood of sturdy, red-brick homes with wrought iron fences along tree-lined, brick-paved streets. At the southern end of German Village, is Schiller Park, named after Friedrich von Schiller, which was once a community meeting ground for the German settlement. It is now the site of recreational facilities, gardens and an amphitheater, which hosts free live performances of Shakespearean plays during the summer months courtesy of the Actor's Theatre. Along with the Short North, it has boasts a significant gay community.
