Columbus Union Station Columbus Union Station, the third iteration of course, was an architectural wonder. Designed after the buildings of the 1892 Chicago World's Fair, it featured a lengthy arcade and SEVERAL arches helping Columbus get one of it's nicknames. Torn down in 1979, preservationists were able to get an injunction at the 11th hour to save one of the arches which stands now in the Arena District. If you want to get a sense of what the building looked like, just take a gander at the Cap on High Street; it was modeled after the fallen Union Station.
Cowtown There's a lot of speculation on where the name, "Cowtown" came from. Some say it's because Columbus was once home to the largest farm in the world, some think it's because The Ohio State University had classrooms next to farms, others because The Ohio State University had one of the largest agricultural programs in the country. Either way, Columbus has always seemed to want to kick the "Cowtown" moniker. But we think it's something that makes Columbus special, and we should lean into it. Cowtown, indeed! Don't shy from what makes you special CBus, embrace it!
Cornhenge Built in 1994, this tribute to the fields that used to be – both on that exact sport and Ohio in general – has become a bit of a destination. With weddings being there and people coming from all around for the perfect picture, this giant field of 106 ears of corn is now synonymous with Columbus, and represents what makes this City, “The biggest small town in America.”
Schiller Park Officially the “second” oldest park in Columbus, Schiller Park actually began as Stewart’s Grove. Owned by Frances Stewart, it was sold to the Deshler’s and Thurman’s in 1866. Bought by the City of Columbus in 1867, the park held festivities like the 1864 and ‘65 Ohio State Fair. After it was purchased, Columbus renamed it City Park until 1891 when a statue of Friedrich von Schiller was dedicated, effectively renaming it Schiller Park. For a brief stint during WWI, the park was renamed Washington Park. Thankfully, they changed it back. Now, as it always has, Schiller Park is like one big backyard for everyone living in the Old South End.
1922 The Horseshoe has been an icon in Columbus, and all of college football for that matter, since 1922 when it first opened. With an entryway designed after the Pantheon and seating in the shape of a horseshoe (hence the name), this stadium is one of a kind. It was originally the largest stadium west of the Appalachian Mountains, and was the first concrete stadium with a deck. Over the years, improvements to the bleachers in the south end zone has increased the stadium capacity, but you can still see the horseshoe shape that gave it its nickname.
