Live to Find Inspiration Everywhere

Located just south of downtown Columbus across the Scioto River, you’ll find the historic neighborhood of Franklinton. This resilient, creative community is both diverse and united, and it is passionate in its mission to provide an affordable neighborhood and resources to its residents. 

Franklinton is home to attractions and experiences big and small, with business owners drawn to the community for its supportive nature. Solidifying its identity as an arts and makers district, you can try unique things to do like Makers Social (sip a cocktail and tackle a DIY project at the same time!) and COSI (voted the best science museum in the nation for the third consecutive year in 2022) in Franklinton — there’s something special and interesting for all interests and ages. The neighborhood is home to creatives of all types, with galleries, public art and more for those who live to find their inspiration. 

With access to green space via the Scioto Mile, breweries, the National Veterans Memorial and Museum, coffee shops and more, it doesn’t matter if you’re a foodie, an artist, or a science or history buff — check out all Franklinton has to offer.
