Learn About the South Side Day Nursery

Emily Schripsema, graduate student from the Savannah College of Art and Design, presents her research and documentation of the former South Side Day Nursery at 253 Reeb Avenue. The building is owned by the Columbus Land Bank and is featured on our Most Endangered Sites List. Built in 1926, the South Side Day Nursery was funded by philanthropist Mrs. W. A. Miller who wanted safe, affordable childcare for working women – an idea that was way ahead of its time. PRESENTATION »

Advocacy Alert! Help Save the South Dormitory

The City of Columbus plans to demolish a building listed in the National Register of Historic Places: the 1935 South Dormitory of the Old Ohio State School for the Blind, 240 Parsons Avenue. The reason? To create additional parking on the expansive Columbus Public Health campus which has a large parking deck, long driveways, and acres of open space. The Jacobethan Revival style dorm is adaptable, reusable, and 100% preservation-worthy. Please help advocate for a productive reuse of this significant landmark and a better solution to a parking problem.  MORE »
