Herb Capital History
Gahanna, Ohio is a city with a long history of cultivating herbs. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, its residents earned a reputation for the quality and quantity of herbs they grew earning Gahanna the nickname, the "Herb Capital". In 1972, the Ohio General Assembly passed a resolution to officially recognize Gahanna as the "Herb Capital of Ohio". The effort was led by Jane "Bunnie" Geroux, a prominent historical society member and avid gardener.
Gahanna celebrates its heritage with the Ohio Herb Center, which offers classes and workshops on herbal topics, the annual Herb Day festival in May, the Herbal Cocktail Trail, and her-infused meals from local restaurants. Herbs are included in many of the city's parks and garden landscapes and the Geroux Herb Garden, a park dedicated to growing Herbs was created in 1975. Gahanna continues to honor its history with these initiatives and its commitment to cultivating herbs.
