Columbus is a city with deep roots. The first settlement of Central Ohio, Franklinton still holds onto the story of determined pioneers, who are responsible for its history going back to the 1800s when Franklinton was founded. It wasn’t just home to old buildings- it was also home to thriving theaters, churches, businesses and government centers which are now being redeveloped into modern-day Franklinton.
Columbus’s first settlers had ambitions for their new life after fleeing from the genocide in Ireland. Despite their best efforts, a terrible flood forced them to a higher ground that would one day become Downtown Columbus with state government buildings like Capitol Square. The story continues through to this day with Downtown Columbus seeing an economic boom and a plethora of cultural diversity which makes this thriving community what it is today: an exciting blend of old-school charm mixed with contemporary amenities!
