The fate of the 1903 Hartman Farm property, now approx. 500 acres along US 23, may be sealed if a rezoning application to allow industrial/commercial use is approved on October 15.
Once a 5,000-acre property and the pride of Dr. Samuel Hartman of Peruna notoriety, the historic farm was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.The rezoning application will be reviewed by the South Columbus Area Commission Zoning Committee at an October 15 meeting at 6:30pm via WebEx. Attend the meeting and follow Save The Hartman Farm Historic District on Facebook to get involved in advocating for this important place.
We have been concerned about the vacancy and deterioration of the schoolhouse on the property – one of two remaining buildings – for many years and have recently been invited by the Ohio Department of Transportation to be a consulting party for a Section 106 Review. ODOT indicated their proposed project at South High (US 23) & Rathmell has the potential “to affect" the Hartman Farm Schoolhouse.
