About Brookside Colony

The beginnings

Originally farmland, the construction of Brookside Colony began around 1980 with the majority of houses were built by several builders including M/I Showcase Homes, Celebrity Homes, Duffy Showcase Homes, Bell Homes, and Quaker Homes over several years.

In 1982, several homes on Silverleaf Court were showcased in the BIA Parade of Homes. The photo to the right is one example.

The neighborhood streets are all named after trees (except Hedera Court and Heatherfield Avenue). The streets include: Mapleleaf Boulevard, Mapleleaf Court, Littleleaf Lane, Littleleaf Court, Palmleaf Lane, Palmleaf Court, Silverleaf Court, Starleaf Lane, and Sunleaf Court.

After most of the Brookside Colony houses were built, the city of Columbus planted trees along the neighborhood streets. The city tried to plant trees whose names started with the same letter as the street name. For example, maple trees were planted along Mapleleaf Boulevard and Mapleleaf Court.
There were only so many varieties of trees available,
so the “system” didn’t hold for every street. A number of these trees remain today.
