Dublin, OH Information

Dublin is a city in Delaware, Franklin, and Union counties in the U.S. state of Ohio. Dublin
is home to the corporate headquarters of Wendy’s Restaurants, and was featured recently in
the “Dublin, Ohio: Home of Wendy’s” commercials. Cardinal Health is also headquartered in
Dublin. Technology is also on top of the list for Dublin, being one of leaders in creating a city wide internet (mesh wifi)
hotspot; being developed by DHB Networks.
Although its earliest settlements date back to 1802, the village that came to be known as Dublin didn’t begin to take
shape until the arrival of the Sells family of Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Brothers Peter and Benjamin Sells purchased
400 acres of land on the west banks of the Scioto River as a gift for their brother John. In 1808, John Sells brought his
family to the region, and by 1810 he had begun to survey lots for the new village with his partner, an Irish gentleman
named John Shields. According to historians, Shields is responsible for naming the town after his native birthplace of
Dublin, Ireland.
By 1970, Dublin was still a small village with only 681 residents. However,
the construction of Interstate 270 facilitated a population boom, spearheaded
by the acquisition of major corporate headquarters such as Ashland Inc.
and Wendy’s International. In addition, the growth of the Muirfield Village
Golf Club and its residential subdivision attracted a large number of affluent
citizens to the rapidly growing suburb. Dublin was officially declared a city in
1987, after reaching a population of 10,000 residents.
Now, each year in late May or early June, the city hosts
The Memorial Tournament, a stop on golf’s PGA Tour.
Consequently, a large number of golf aficionados choose
to make Dublin their home. There are also three other
fine golf courses in Dublin.
Other annual events include the 4th of July music
event, a St. Patrick’s Day parade, and the Dublin Irish
Festival. The Mall at Tuttle Crossing, which is the
third-largest shopping center in Columbus, can also be
found nearby.
