Spectrum Opens in Hilliard, Ohio

Spectrum opens in Hilliard, Ohio,
a quaint historic district outside of Columbus.

Located centrally in the heart of Ohio, and a suburb of Columbus is a quaint historic district known as Hilliard. Hilliard Assisted Living & Memory Care will be Spectrum Retirement’s second community in Ohio, but the first to contain Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia care living options.

Projected to welcome residents this spring, Hilliard Assisted Living & Memory Care will feature a combination of 100 assisted living and memory care apartments offering loved ones a fine balance between independence and care, along with Spectrum’s very own unique transitional memory care program – the Residence ClubTM. Amenities will include a wellness center, theater, library, beauty salon, transportation and plenty more — all carefully tailored to accommodate the residents’ personality, values and personal preferences. More than 40 percent of the community will be utilized for community space.

This beautiful town offers a variety of historical and cultural sites to engage local residents. Originally called Hilliard’s Station, the area served as a shipping point for agricultural products used by local farmers. John Hilliard Reed initiated development here in 1852, when he purchased ten acres of farmland in the area. In 1854, the first post office opened, establishing the area as a village. At that time, the word “Station” was dropped from its original name, leaving the town as, simply, Hilliard.

The first railroad station, located west of Main Street, remained there until all railroad services ceased in 1962. Dedication to preserving its rich heritage proves to be of importance to Hilliard. Today, the original train station has been restored and continues to be a part of the historic village in Weaver Park.

The train station is not all Hilliard has taken the initiative to preserve. Hilliard is also home to the Early Television Museum. The Early Television Museum contains a collection of more than 150 television receiver sets, including mechanical TVs from the 1920s and ’30s, as well as World War II British sets; pre-war American sets; post-war American, British, French, and German sets; and early color televisions.

First Responders Park, also in the historic village, is the second largest 9/11 commemorative park found in the U.S. The City of Hilliard constructed the park, dedicated on September 11, 2010, to pay tribute to first responders everywhere and to serve as a reminder of the events of that tragic day.
