Founded in 1908, Bexley is one of the earliest suburbs of Columbus, but it was home to Native Americans long before Ohio became a state and Columbus its capital. Bexley packs a wealth of history and culture into less than two and a half square miles. It has been home to governors, award-winning authors, artists, movie stars, business leaders, and a famed aviatrix. Bexley has a long history of diversity and inclusion, welcoming people of all faiths and ethnicities. Bordered on all sides by the city of Columbus, Bexley has still been able to maintain a unique economic vitality characterized by businesses of all types for over 100 years. Just as notable is the city’s wide array of churches and synagogues, as well as high-quality public and private educational institutions, including Capital University, that educate students from grammar school through graduate studies.
