SOLD OUT! From Devastation Rises the Phoenix
How The 1913 Flood Led to Creation Of Columbus’ Stunning Riverfront
Sunday, July 2pm – 3pm
The Green Lawn Abbey Preservation Association is pleased to host this program on the 1913 Flood. This natural disaster wrought vast destruction upon our State Capitol, but from the destruction came a transformed city with a new architecturally stunning government complex at its core.
Fortunately, Columbus leadership was primed with a plan. The riverfront became not only a lovely natural asset again but also the heart of the government and sight of some of the city’s finest architecture.
Mayor George Karb, interred at Green Lawn Abbey, and architect Frank Packard were key figures responsible for bringing this city back from the brink.
Admission is Free but reservations are strongly recommended.
Program made possible by a grant from Ohio Humanities.
