Lincoln Village is a census-designated place (CDP) in Prairie Township, Franklin County, Ohio, United States. It is centered near the intersection of US 40 and I-270 on the west side of Columbus. As of the 2010 census, the population was 9,032, [4] down from 9,482 at the 2000 census.

Contents

Lincoln Village was started in 1955 as a planned community by a real estate subsidiary of Nationwide Insurance. The community was developed to have all the essentials, such as a shopping center, schools, and parks, and to incorporate safety considerations such as not positioning the homes on street corners to eliminate blind intersections.

History

Ohio Farm Bureau Federation President and CEO Murray Lincoln had aspired to create a suburban "village" since the early 1940s. Lincoln, as the head of what would become Nationwide Insurance from 1920 to 1948, initiated work on the Lincoln Village project in the early 1950s with the support of the U.S. Cooperative Movement. [5] Lincoln was able to "sell" the Cooperative ideology to Ohio individual farmers, and viewed co-ops as "an answer to Communism in Europe and Asia, and as a balance wheel against unfettered private enterprise in the U.S."[ citation needed ] After founding several co-op and non co-op enterprises, Lincoln was able to fund the development of Lincoln Village with assets made from these corporations (which totaled $133,510,000).[ citation needed ] Lincoln's People's Development Corporation was formed to build Lincoln Village. The price of this project was about $30,000,000 USD.[ citation needed ] The plan for Lincoln Village included 9 miles (14 km) of streets, sewers, a pumping station, and a million-gallon water pump. Lincoln Village was built for 10,000 inhabitants, and was set around a 20-acre (8.1 ha) civic center.[ citation needed ] In 1953, bulldozers completed grading of 1,270 acres (510 ha) of farmland in western Columbus for the construction of Lincoln Village, with churches, a school, wooded park, playgrounds, and a library. A shopping center would also be built. Housing in the village was to include apartment buildings and single family homes priced between $9,000 to $16,000.
