Wonderland was formerly an upper-class resort community, situated just outside of the Columbus suburb of Gahanna, near a bend in Big Walnut Creek. It would be slowly abandoned over a period of years after the late 1920s. As recently as the mid-1990s there were still decaying roads and abandoned residential buildings; however, this land has been bought by the Port Columbus International Airport for future expansion, and has finally razed the remaining structures and fenced off the land. The only remaining reminder of this town is the Wonderland Community Church, on Friendship Drive, next to the interchange of Interstate 270 and Hamilton Road. The Church was spared by prayer and faith in that God would allow it to remain to this day. Local folktales and rumours in Gahanna and on the east side of Columbus up until the early 80's said that Wonderland was developed afterWorld WarI as a "utopia" of sorts, although the rumours were never proven true.
