Vassor Village has an important story to tell in the history of Columbus. Located in the city’s Near South Side, the Vassor Village area has enjoyed an interesting past.

Home to historic houses, churches, schools, a hospital and businesses, the Vassor Village area remains a vibrant and special place. Today, many of the people residing in the area have strong family ties dating back to the early 1900s. The neighborhood continues to attract new families and individuals for many of the same reasons it did almost a century ago: pleasant, affordable and solidly built housing, strong neighborhood institutions, and easy access to area employers.

However, instead of heading south to Steelton, many of today’ s residents commute to their jobs downtown, at the nearby The Ohio State University, or to other employers throughout the city and its suburbs including those South Side manufacturing concerns still in operation.
