It’s a warm smile from your neighbor…a kind gesture from a stranger and much more.
It’s our heritage.
Founded by Quakers, also known as “Friends,” Westfield served as a key stop on the central route on the Underground Railroad with at least nine homes offering food, shelter and assistance to slaves escaping to freedom in the north.
Over the years the community continues be known for its friendly residents who readily get involved in community events and greet their neighbors as they stroll down the street.
With the addition of Grand Park, Westfield welcomes visitors from all over the country for tournaments. Local volunteers in orange shirts are ready to give a golf cart ride or directions to area amenities. Our focus on hospitality is a key part of our future and as Mayor Andy Cook says, “hospitality is our industry.”
As one of the more diverse communities in Hamilton County, all are welcome. It’s something special here that we like to call the “Westfield Welcome.”
