Lewis Center Real Estate Information
Lewis Center is one of the small unincorporated communities found in the state of Ohio, which also goes by the nickname of the “Buckeye State”. Lewis Center is situated in Orange Township, which is an incorporated community in the midst of Delaware County. Delaware County is the most heavily populated county in the state of Ohio, mostly due to the presence of the state capital and Ohio's largest city, Columbus, and its many suburbs. Although Lewis Center is often overlooked because of its frankly tiny size, it is nonetheless one of the best places to live in Delaware County. Lewis Center is able to offer a more relaxed lifestyle than the larger suburbs of Columbus because of its location and laid-back attitude.
Interestingly, the relatively small population of Lewis Center belies the large quantity of retail centers and shopping malls that share the same Zip Code and Post Office as the residential areas. Lewis Center is flanked by the city of Powell, with which it is often associated, Alum Creek State Park, which offers a number of recreational and sightseeing opportunities, and the Olentangy River. Lewis Center is found in the middle section of Delaware County, meaning that it is central to a wide variety of small, medium, and large communities and towns throughout the region. The continued importance of Lewis Center is at least in part attributable to the fact that Route 23 passes straight through the community, bringing a constant surge of retail interest to the area.
Lewis Center is sometimes known as the Polaris Area, which is a locally understood reference to the preponderance of retail establishments in the region. The educational needs of Lewis Center are met primarily by the Olentangy School District, which maintains a number of public institutions, as well as a variety of private schools, colleges, and universities in the city of Columbus itself. The convenient location of Lewis Center on the outskirts of Columbus also ensures that residents of Lewis Center can enjoy the nightlife and urban attractions of a large city while still taking advantage of the peace and quiet of a small suburban community.
