New Rome was a small village located in Franklin County, Ohio. Established in the mid-20th century, it gained notoriety for its traffic and law enforcement practices, which led to substantial controversy over the years. Due to various issues, including financial and legal controversies, the village was officially dissolved in 2004, with its territory being annexed to the city of Columbus. Its history, particularly in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, remains a topic of interest to many Ohioans.


New Rome occupied a minuscule area of less than a quarter square mile in Central Ohio. The landscape was predominantly flat, characteristic of the larger region around it. Its geographical layout was dominated by the main thoroughfare, West Broad Street, around which the bulk of its residential and commercial entities were centered. The village's small footprint meant that most services and amenities were actually located in neighboring areas or within the nearby city of Columbus.


Given its tiny size, New Rome's population was modest. The village was home to a mix of age groups and backgrounds, with many residents having deep roots in the community. Demographically, it was representative of many small Midwest towns, with a predominantly Caucasian population. Residents were largely working-class, with a range of professions, but the village itself was primarily known for its traffic court and related law enforcement activities rather than any significant commercial or industrial ventures.
