The Franklin Park Medical Center, designed by local Architect Harold Scofield, features architectural elements inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. An important part of the City’s heritage, the building is included in Columbus Landmarks Foundation’s recent African-American Landmarks Preservation Initiative Report. The Medical Center was opened by five African-American physicians and served primarily African-American clientele at a time when medical services were still largely segregated. The building is currently unoccupied and has sustained significant water damage. Interested community residents are working to save the building.
