History In Your Own Backyard

I’ve become quite the amateur architecture and history buff as of late thanks to great websites like Buildings of Detroit and Scouting NY. I had never really paid much attention to the buildings and places around me in Columbus until recently. I started a little side project to take pictures of places on the National Register of Historic Places in Franklin County. The map above is only some of them but you can quickly see that you don’t have to travel far to find something historical and architecturally significant; they are right here in your back yard.

If you live in a county other than Franklin, and want to help us document NRHP listed structures and places please contact us
