Frank Fetch was a dedicated city employee who recognized that the "near south side" of Columbus could be more than the neglected area it had become. In 1959, he made that dream a reality when he renovated 767 Wall St., on the outskirts of what would later become German Village. While others had completed renovations, Fetch went further, opening his house for tours, and later, along with other visionaries, helping form the German Village Society. Following his lead, the annual Haus and Garten Tour was established in 1960 and has inspired tens of thousands of lovers of historic architecture ever since. Fetch is still considered the "father of German Village."
