Welcome to Powell
Powell is found in Delaware County in Ohio, and sits between the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers. First settled around 1801 and incorporated in 1947, it remained a small town until the late 1980's. As the Columbus metropolitan area reached Powell, the population grew.
The city is an affluent bedroom community for Columbus, which is about 14 miles to the south. Powell is well known for its historic downtown, which features lovely antique shops. Past and present residents of Powell have been dedicated to preserving the historic nature of the city.
Residents enjoy the small town feel of Powell while still being in proximity to adjoining Liberty Township, which offers the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and its water park Zoombezi Bay, O'Shaughnessy Dam, and the historic Olentangy Indian Caverns.
The City of Powell was even named “One of the Best Places to Live in the United States” by CNN/Money Magazine.
