The city of Columbus celebrated its 207th anniversary on Februrary 14. We take pride in our city and its history, and we’re always hungry to learn more about our home.

In Columbus’ German Village neighborhood, a pair of developers plans to tear down an old foundry to make way for condos and single family housing.  The German Village Commission has opposed the plan, but the developers believe their plan will bolster the neighborhood’s character.

Supporters of Franklinton are hoping for this same reaction to their revitalization efforts. On this hour, we'll talk about historic preservation across the country and in Columbus. Guests
