The Short North neighborhood can trace its origin to the arrival of the railroad to Columbus in 1850. With the location of Union Station on the city's then northern edge, development spread north on High Street. Factories and industry sprouted up within walking distance of the new neighborhoods consisting of foreign immigrants and migrants from the South. A decline in the middle of the 20th century led to a concerted effort at redevelopment. As urban homesteaders moved in and reclaimed deteriorating property, brave developers added their touch and supplied inexpensive space for art galleries and shops. What was once run-down and dangerous became cool and cutting edge. This all led to the Short North's current reputation as a fun and attractive area of the city to live and visit.
