Hanford Village Culture Walk
Highway Divided … but Still United

The tiny neighborhood — with a big designation in the National Register of Historic Places — maintains unity despite a highway bisection. Built post-World War II for African-American service men and their families, Hanford residents have strong ties to Lockbourne Air Force Base and the famed Tuskegee Airmen. Once a village on the site of Alum Creek, the area was predominately rural (its massive grain silos still dominate the landscape) and flooding was an issue. Hanford had its own mayor, council and fire department before it came into the City of Columbus. Eventually, this early community became the site for a federal planned community of homes and it was impacted by construction of the highway that now swirls around and above it. Hanford’s culture is bound by its little-known history and its hopes for the future.
