Minerva Lake

The village land was founded as an amusement park, also named Minerva Park. The park had a roller coaster, a small zoo, a lake, and other attractions. The park opened July 13, 1895. It operated until 1902, after Olentangy Park outcompeted Minerva Park. For its later history, the site became a graveyard for discarded streetcars. The park's owner unsuccessfully pleaded with Westerville to preserve the amusement park. The site was vacant until 1927, when construction of the subdivision began. The village was incorporated in 1940. [4]
