Westerville, Ohio, once known as the "Dry Capital of the World," has carved a niche for itself in history that few small towns can boast. Its industrious citizens founded Otterbein College, shaped an active business and social community, and attracted the nation's attention by taking a strong stand on the sale of alcohol. Wooed by the promise of land in a "dry" community, the Anti-Saloon League located their printing headquarters in the village in 1909. The photographs in this book capture Westerville as it grew and changed from the 19th century to 1961, when it officially became a city.
