Berwyn East History
The Berwyn East Civic Association was established in 1989. In 2004, BECA merged with the Berwyn East Blockwatch organization to form an even stronger union dedicated to civic issues and crime prevention. Berwyn East is home to community anchors such as, Bishop Hartley High School, which opened in 1957, TAT Ristorante di Famiglia at the corner of Livingston Avenue and James Road, which opened in 1978 and the landmark Watlao Buddhamamakaran, a Buddhist temple with a presence on Bexvie Avenue since 1987.
Barnett School was built in 1964 and closed in 1977. It reopened as Barnett Recreation Center. The recreation center continues to be an anchor in the community. Notably, in 2007, a sprayground was added and in 2018, members of the Columbus Blue Jackets completed installation of a new playground.
Both Scottwood Elementary and Johnson Park Middle School were built in 1958 and are still open as public schools.
