It was created on Sunday, January 15, 1967.
Worthington resident Bill Arter wrote and illustrated the stories of many Columbus and Ohio landmarks in the Columbus Dispatch Magazine in his weekly feature "Columbus Vignettes." From 1964-1971 his talents as writer/illustrator and his passion for researching and exploring old houses were combined in weekly articles, which eventually became four hardbound volumes. In 1975 the articles about locations in Worthington were published in a separate volume entitled "Worthington Vignettes". In the 1950s Arter was published in the Dispatch in features on diverse Ohio subjects from the interurban, the Blennerhessett family, Ohio artist David Blythe, to Edgar Mix, world famous balloonist. Further, Arter was Creative Director and Vice President of an advertising firm and teacher at O.S.U. and Ohio Wesleyan. He also painted watercolors of favorite buildings throughout central Ohio.
