A Look Back At Westerville
The area that is now Westerville was first settled in the early 1800s, by three Dutch brothers with the last name ‘Westervelt’. The small settlement grew slowly, being incorporated in 1858.
In 1859, the town banned alcohol sales entirely, and townspeople attacked anyone who tried to open a saloon. The town’s hatred for alcohol grew so significant that in 1909, the Anti-Saloon League, responsible for prohibition in the early 20th century, moved their headquarters to Westerville, and the town became known as the ‘Dry Capital Of The World’. Only very recently, since around the 1990s and 2000s, has alcohol sale been allowed in Westerville.
