Diverse layers of architectural styles and eras help make Columbus distinctive. The nine featured sites represent a variety of eras, styles, uses and neighborhoods. They all have stories to tell and they all matter.
Ongoing building maintenance is a terrific challenge … especially in trying times. Columbus Landmarks is committed to providing research, consultation, and resources to assist with caring for historic properties so that they endure to meet the needs of future generations.
Saving our historic buildings through renovation and adaptive reuse not only adds to the distinctiveness of our community, but it is critical to achieving necessary carbon reduction benchmarks. Reusing existing buildings is good for the economy, the community and the environment … it’s an investment in people!
Columbus Landmarks publishes the annual list of Most Endangered Sites to create awareness, start conversations, and stimulate appropriate rehabilitation of properties at risk of demolition, long-term vacancy, deterioration, or impending development.
The featured buildings are identified and nominated by the public, screened and selected by our Advocacy Committee, and approved by our Board of Trustees.
