The city of Dublin, Ohio is co-located in Delaware, Franklin, and Union counties in Ohio. Dublin and the surrounding area was home to the Shawnee, Delaware, Hopewell, Adenas, and Wyandot Indians and was laid out on part of 2000 acres of land which the United States federal government gave to Lieutenant James Holt as payment for his service in the American Revolutionary War. A 400 acre parcel of Holt’s land was bought by John Sells, in the first part of the 1800s, and it was platted as a village in 1810. That parcel is still part of Dublin and is known as “Historic Dublin,” which still has dry limestone fences and buildings designed in 19th century architecture. Many of the buildings are listed in the National Register of Historical Places. In 1970, Dublin as still a tiny town with 681 residents, but when Wendy’s International and Ashland Inc. moved into town, followed by the Muirfield Village Golf Club, designed by Jack Nicklaus, the population virtually skyrocketed. In 1987, Dublin, with more than 5,000 agents, became a city.
