In the early 1900s, downtown Columbus residents and professors from Ohio State University were building summer homes in Clintonville and many of the surrounding farmlands was converted into housing developments. This made commuting easier, especially after the extension of the streetcar lines northward from downtown. A business district developed in the neighboring community of Beechwold, which is separated by about a mile of residences from the Clintonville district to the south. Both communities were part of the Columbus area by the 1950s and it's home to Columbus's first zoo, which both opened and closed in 1905.
It was home to an amusement park from 1880 to 1939 featuring four roller coasters including the rare looping coaster, a dance pavilion, waterslides and canoe rentals for the Olentangy River. One of the fixtures of this park still lives on as the carousel currently housed at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
