Bexley Real Estate
Bexley is a first-ring suburb of Columbus and is known for its historic and close-knit neighborhoods, its highly ranked public school system, its classic and walkable Main Street environment, the prestigious private schools located within its borders, and its status as the home of Capital University. The village of Bexley was incorporated in 1908 when the neighborhoods of Bullit Park to the north and Pleasant Ridge to the south combined. Bullit Park had formed in the late 1800s as a neighborhood occupied by wealthy Columbus residents who constructed country homes and urban estates east of Alum Creek along Broad Street. Pleasant Ridge was a Lutheran community rooted in the academic environment of Capital University, which located in the neighborhood in 1876. After reaching a population of 5,000 in the late 1920s, Bexley became a city in 1932. Today, Bexley has a population of over 14,000 residents, with over 4,000 households in the City.
