Downtown Columbus Streetscape and Architecture

The restoration of charming  downtown Columbus reflects the city’s history.  These buildings  are in sharp contrast to the Architectual Masterpieces that appear downtown and throughout the City.  Many restaurants of quaint design and theme occupy the area along with small shoppes and weather permitting, outdoor cafes.

Mill Race Park is located downtown and positioned on the shores of White River and features an outdoor theater where many special musical events and festivals are held.

Also located downtown is the Bartholomew County Library where the magnificent Henry Moore Large Arch sits outside on the library plaza. Always believing that you can tell a lot about a city and its priorities from its library, we would be sure that Columbus is indeed special place where the focus is indeed on a Quality of Life uncommon in many places. Also, located down, Cummins Engine Company Corporate Headquarters and the recently completed Mill Race Center, a center devoted to activities for 50 and up!

These are just a few of the highlights of Columbus’ downtown for a visit to Kids Commons and Zaharakos Ice Cream Parlor and Museum would certainly be a part of a comprehensive tour.   Opening soon, the new Commons will feature the indoor children’s playground, special events center, restaurants – the gathering place of Columbus.
