    I was checking out your awesome website and I was curious about the lack of mention of the weisheimer family. Paul Weisheimer was my grandfather. I didnt see any mrntion of their water mill/or in the 1st familys in clintonville. Dou have alot of materials/research/info on the weisheimer family and its contributions? I could talk to my Mom gayla weisheimer and my uncle craig weisheimer and scrounge up some photos stories/articles about our family if you don’t have them or know their story. I think the family mansion was sold in the late 60’s to the teaters if my info is correct. Thanks for your time, Eric. 614-507-2620 cell.

    Hi Eric,

    I have several pictures of Weisheimer properties that are in my published book, Clintonville and Beechwold. I would love to see the ones you have as well, and if possible, to scan them for this web site.

    The mill on king was one of the first buildings I photographed when I started documenting remaining buildings that used to be served by railroads..I’d love to see photos of the mill @ king in action.


    The mansion was on the market just this past year I think. Also, in my research, I vaguely recall hearing about one of the weisheimers starting a book… any information on that?

    The mill at King Avenue is, of course, outside of the scope of this web site. There is another Arcadia book due to be published in the latter part of 2009 about the North Columbus area, and it’s possible the King Avenue mill would be included in that. The Weisheimer family owned both mills. I’m not aware of a book about the King Avenue mill written by someone in the Weisheimer family, but someone may well have done so. Carl Weisheimer wrote a booklet about Sellsville, an area on the west side of the river; I don’t know if he wrote other books as well.

    The Weisheimer mansion is featured in my book, Clintonville and Beechwold; it did change owners in the past couple of years.

    Hey all, I am a local realtor in Clintonville and just noticed that the Weisheimer mansion came on the market today. Now would be a great time to get photos of the interior of this historic home if need be. Although I am not the listing agent for this property it has always been an interest of mine, if anyone has photos of the original mill I would love to see them. ryougn535@hotmail.com

    Hello, There is a photo of the second generation mill–the one torn down in the early 1950s–in my book, Clintonville and Beechwold. -SH

    My husband is the great grandson of Jacob Weisheimer. His grandfather was Alfred Weisheimer, one of the sons of Charles. We just went to Germany a few years ago and found out more information on the Weisheimers there and met several of them in Walheim, Koblenz, Andernach and Osthofen. We just hosted one of the 16 year old daughters this summer. I wonder if any of the other Weisheimer descendants would like to meet and talk.

    My mother is Grace Weisheimer, daugher of my grandfather Carl Weisheimer, who owned and ran the mill on King Ave. I am currently doing research on the Weisheimer family in all references going back to Germany. I travel to Germany and want to visit relatives and historical reference poits. Any help is appreciated.

  9. Jason Buchanan Says:

    My mother is Gayla Weisheimer, daughter of my grandfather Paul Weisheimer, who also owned and ran the mill on King Ave with his brother Carl. My Grandfather lived in the White House on the Property, and I grew up playing on every floor in the Mill, sometimes on the roof without permission. I have read the Weisheimer book your Grandfather did on the History of the Weisheimer Family. My GrandFather showed me the Milling Stone in Olentangy River when I was 8 years old, from the East Bank from the property of Weisheimer Mansion.

    That same day he showed me the location where the Circus came and set up North of Dodridge on the East side of the Olentangy River when he was a child.

    I sure do miss Clintonville, Jason Buchanan

    I’m part of the German “Weissheimer” family. Jakob Weissheimer was the son of Isaak Weissheimer. Another of Isaak’s 11 children was a son called Michael, Jakob’s brother, who became the father of my great-grandfather Georg. After World War II, Charles and Grace Weisheimer from Columbus / Ohio sent CARE packages to my mother’s family which was an invaluable support, and in the late 50es or beginning 60es Charles and Grace came to Germany for a visit to our family. My aunt has a large Weissheimer family tree which goes back to the late 14th century and abundant documentation about the family. I’m about to compile all the documentation, dates and anecdotes and want to turn it into a book to be distributed to all our family members. Therefore, I would like to know more about the Weisheimer family of Columbus, because that’s the part which is not so abundantly documented in my aunt’s archive. So, I really would be happy if anyone of you could help me. Of course, if you would like to know about the roots of the German Weissheimer family, I will be happy to give you all the dates. You can contact me via e-mail brigitte@moder.com

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Best regards from Brigitte

    The current owner of the Weisheimer home is making major changes – barn torn down, addition is planned to the kitchen, along with a master bedroom wing (or so I have heard). The barn is gone and the driveway has been moved to east side of the house. A guest house is planned also. Can these types of changes be made to a property that is listed as a Historic Place? (June 2014)

    From the National Register’s web site: “From the Federal perspective (the National Register of Historic Places is part of the National Park Service), a property owner can do whatever they want with their property as long as there are no Federal monies attached to the property. You can find this on [their] website at:
    However, before this occurs, you can, or the property owner should contact the State historic preservation office (SHPO.) The SHPO is the state agency that oversees historic preservation efforts in their state. There may be state or local preservation laws that the owner should be aware of before they undertake a project with a historic property. You can find contact information for the SHPOs at:
    If Federal monies are attached to the property then any changes to the property have to allow the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (www.achp.gov) to comment on the project.”
