Downtown Westerville Architecture

Buildings and signage along the 3-C highway in the Westerville Business District

Looking north along State St (Oh 3) from College Ave through "Downtown" Westerville (from March, 2003)

Several of the buildings along State St in Westerville have a streetsign plaque inbeded in them for motorist to see. However I doubt this was very effective.
No, I didn't ask the lady to pose there in the photo on the left. No, I don't know who Buzz Cockeral is, or why the Graeter's Ice Cream building is named for him. Photos from March, 2003.
UPDATE: Thanks to Renee Kropat, I have an answer as to who Buzz Cockeral is now. Buzz was the original owner of a diner where Graeter now sits. It is noted as where the local retirees come to shoot the breeze.

A brick street leading to one of Otterbein College's buildings. From March, 2003.

Something doesn't look right with that I-71 shield. It lacks a point at the bottom and the mid section needs to be a little more bowed out. Otherwise, it does its job just nicely. Junction of Worthington and Hanawalt Rds between Polaris and Westerville (Photo taken in June, 2004)

Also check out Run by Renee Kropat, she has reposted several of my photos, from here, on her site (check the Virtual tour section) as well.
