Hot Homes: 7 Houses For Sale In Olde Towne East Right Now
Olde Towne East, affectionately known as OTE, is one of Columbus’ oldest neighborhoods.
A variety of architectural styles are represented in this historical district, with some homes dating back to as early as the 1830s. Long before Columbus, this area was important to Native Americans, acting as a waypoint between the Scioto and Muskingum rivers.
