In 1798, a settlement named Franklinton sprouted up on the west bank of the Scioto River, just below the Olentangy River. The Ohio legislature accepted a proposal in 1812 for the high bank east of the Scioto River, across the river from Franklinton, to be the site of the capital city. The location was given the name Columbus, even though it had no inhabitants at the time. Columbus grew quickly and became the county seat. The arrival of the National Road, the Ohio Canal, and the railroads contributed greatly to Columbus’s growth. This capital city developed first as a transportation hub, then as a manufacturing center, and finally as the commerce, education, and government center that it is today.

Great photographs laid out chronologically and great to see some stuff I forgot about.

Columbus is the capital city of Ohio, a place with rich history. While many of its residents pledge loyalty to Cleveland or Cincinatti due to their professional sports teams, natives have plenty of reasons to take pride in the city.

This book explores some of the history of Columbus through vintage photographs. Many of the buildings shown no longer exist or have been updated over the years, but several survive, and many of the businesses will sound familiar to longtime residents. Companies like Big Bear and Lazarus no longer exist, but their presence played an important role in the development of Columbus and they are paid tribute here. Vintage photos of the Kahiki restaurant in Whitehall (carelessly demolished in favor of a Walgreens) and an exhibit on the origins of man at the original COSI (foolishly discarded in the move to a new building) will resurrect memories for those who were lucky enough to enjoy these unique places.

Residents will feel a new appreciation for the downtown area and the plentiful buildings that have stood there for a century, in varying conditions. Tourists will find hidden treasures in a city that if often dismissed as boring.

I bought this book after I flipped through and couldn't put it down. I am in my 30's and I recognized little areas in the photos. I recognized places that were torn down. I was riding(passenger) in the car through downtown Columbus while reading this book comparing and contrasting what it is like now and how it was in the past. I just wish Columbus' Downtown could be as vibrant now as it was in past. My mom who as born and raised in Columbus felt connected to this book and brought back so many of her childhood memories. I highly recomend this for anyone who is interest in Columbus and Ohio history.
