Welcome to the Franklinton Development Association
Founded in 1797, Franklinton is the oldest community in central Ohio. On the banks of the Scioto and adjacent to downtown Columbus, the neighborhood offers the best skyline and river views in the city.
This proud working-class neighborhood was plagued by flooding though out the last century leaving a stagnant real estate market and other social challenges. With a protective floodwall now in place the Franklinton Development Association is leading the charge to breath new life into the community. Among many other community development projects, the FDA has created over 150 new or significantly rehabbed homes in Franklinton.
