The historic neighborhood of German Village in Columbus was almost on the verge of decline but to the efforts of a group of like-minded individuals headed by Frank Fetch, who set-out on the task of preserving the heritage. This led to the creation of German Village Society on January 10, 1960, a not-for-profit civic organization. The efforts of this group of volunteers led to preservation of most of the building, private and public spaces, as well as it being inducted into the United States Government's National Register of Historic Places in 1978. The German Village Society, today, is supported by donations and almost a thousand preservationists aiming to further strengthen the neighborhood. The Society also conducts Haus und Garten Tour, a tour that would take you through some of the 1,600 restored structures in the past fifty years. Visit their website to know more about their preservation work and more information.
