The historic City of Powell (settled in 1813) isn’t just a destination – it’s a fascinating journey, one that not only provides a glimpse back in time, but also inspires you to dream about the future. We can easily look ahead and see ourselves enjoying all the City has to offer in the years to come.  Our semi-rural setting amidst the scenic countryside brings new residents to our lovely town.

Powell embraces its humble roots and takes pride in maintaining a quaint, homespun downtown that is alive and thriving with excitement and activity. We have preserved the ambiance of a historic village lined with beautiful sidewalks, which are perfectly suited for leisurely strolls to distinctive shops and casual restaurants. We paired that small-town atmosphere with all the modern-day conveniences and amenities of a prosperous city that offers upscale dining, specialty shops and services, and family-friendly special events.

Here, you’ll find the past, present and future – all nestled between the rolling, scenic highlands of the Scioto and Olentangy River valleys. Experience the time of your life as the historic City of Powell welcomes you home.
