The city of Powell, Ohio is a suburb of Columbus and is one of the most affluent communities in the state of Ohio. The land that today includes Powell was granted to James Parker in 1800 as payment for his services during the Revolutionary War. The first settlers arrived via the Olentangy River near what is now Liberty Presbyterian Church in 1801. The town was originally named “Middlebury” when it was founded because of all of the residents coming from Middlebury, CT. In 1857, Judge Thomas Powell established the first post office in the community and the town was renamed Powell, Ohio. The population was only a few hundred in the 1980s but has since exploded to nearly 15,000. Homes in Powell usually range from $75,000 to nearly $9,000,000 and tend to sell relatively quickly.
