Before there was a Columbus, there was Franklinton. On this walking tour guests will learn more about the rich history of this historic neighborhood and visualize a timeline that swings from the epic highs of settlement to tragic lows of death, destruction, flooding and misfortune in the 20th century. We’ll discuss the new trajectory of the neighborhood and what that means for Columbus, Franklinton, and most importantly, the people of this community. As for the adventure part of your tour, we will explore the craft beer & food stops that are putting the area on the map with the man that shaped the area, unofficial Mayor Jim Sweeney.
