A fascinating and insightful look at a forgotten era in Columbus, Ohio's history, today the state's largest city with a robust and exciting past.

Columbus, Ohio, "an odd amalgam of the planned and the spontaneous," was founded on the banks of the Scioto River in 1812 as the new seat of this young state's government. Located in the wilderness of central Ohio, nearly equidistant to the "real" cities of Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Toledo, Columbus experienced 100 years of unprecedented growth from which it would emerge the state's capital in more than title alone. Today, it is Ohio's largest city. Forgotten Columbus features many people, places, and events that defined this burgeoning 19th and early-20th century city. And above all, the places--from the Old Ohio Penitentiary, to Fort Hayes, to the recently revitalized Brewery District--which either no longer exist, or have changed so dramatically over the years that they are barely recognizable. Residents and visitors alike will find this a fascinating, insightful, and at times surprising look back at a forgotten era in Columbus's history.
