History

Lincoln Village was built in the late 1950s as part of a new neighborhood concept in which suburbs were built near factories and would include local schools and strip malls of stores which would support the families. It was written up in a major article in Life Magazine about 1960 as the wave of the future.[ citation needed ] Lincoln Village was built near the Columbus factories for Westinghouse and General Motors. The model homes for Lincoln Village were the first few homes on the west side of Redmond Road. The development is newer than the homes on roads to its west from Woodlawn Avenue to New Rome and from South Grener Avenue to I-270. Another highlight of the neighborhood was the well-known Lincoln Lodge Motel which included a golf course which was at the northwest corner of North Murray Hill Road and West Broad Street.

The general area is home to several older buildings, and contains apartment complexes and stores. Popular stores in or near the neighborhood are KFC, CVS, and the Home Depot. Lincoln Village South is home to Stiles Elementary School. Stiles is home to children from Lincoln Park, Murray Hill, and Cherry Creek.
