Inhabited originally by the French Colonial Empire, during the 18th century many European settlers headed to the area attracted by the ever-increasing fur trade and commercial prospects.  This, in turn, led to rapid growth in population and led to the development of the city in the 1800s. A wave of immigration to the area led to suburbs being populated. With the addition of the railroad in 1850, the city was able to trade more efficiently. By the latter half of the 1800s, the city was a centre for manufacturing, trade, and became known as the “buggy capital” due to over a dozen buggy factories calling Columbus home. 

Over recent years the city has rejuvenated the downtown area of the city and the city has become the grounds for many corporations and businesses including Fortune 500 companies such as Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company and Big Lots. The main employers in the city alongside the Fortune 500 companies are the school district and hi-tech research labs. In 2012 the city was named the best city to live in for working moms.  Corporate housing in the area situates guests staying on business close to these companies, allowing for easy access to daily destinations.
