We’re Expanding Our Footprint A Bit

12 Jun , 2021  

By 1808Delaware

As you access 1808Delaware over the coming weeks, you may notice a few changes.

We love being a part of the Delaware County community. That shared, we are obviously aware that the interconnection between the county and the northern parts of Columbus is remarkably strong. Commuters travel back and forth each day, and Delaware Countians routinely shop in Franklin County and vice versa.

In recognition of that fact, we are going to be expanding our focus a bit to bring in the northern suburbs of Columbus, such as Dublin and Worthington, as well as the I-270 northern corridor.

We’re still focusing our primary attention on Delaware, Powell, Sunbury, Galena, Lewis Center, Ostrander, and Westerville. More…

Memorial Day 2020

See You On Saturday!

We’re going to be taking a very rare “day off” Friday at 1812Blockhouse, and for good reason.

On Thursday afternoon, we installed brand new hardware designed to make our site bigger, faster, and better. That, in turn, requires us to move over all non-cloud based information from one system to the other.

That is true for the three sites we currently operate. It’s a big operation. More…

1808Delaware, Life in Delaware County

A Year Of COVID-19

12 Mar , 2021  

Publisher’s Note: It has been a year unlike any other in our lifetimes, as a pandemic which struck without regard to social or economic status not only ravaged populations worldwide, but altered the ways in which Americans, Ohioans, and Delaware Countians live and work. The changes have been dramatic and many continue.

It was during these weeks last year that the news broke and the world changed. We are marking that anniversary with a repeat of an article we ran back on New Year’s Eve, looking back at 2020.

Coincidentally, this week I obtained my own vaccination. — Thomas Palmer
