Georgesville becoming popular stop for bicyclists | Columbus Dispatch


A family bicycling along the Camp Chase Trail in western Franklin County last month stopped at Janet and Jimmie Moore’s house and asked if they could set up camp in their backyard.
“They were coming from Canada and pitched a tent behind the carport,” Mr. Moore said.
For at least one night, Georgesville once again served as a whistle stop for inter-city travelers.
The town used to have a railroad depot — on Railroad Street, of course — along the east-west rail heading into Columbus.
For decades, passenger trains whizzed by the houses there.
Mrs. Moore said she remembers watching people in the dining car, wondering where they were going.
