Eastgate Historic Walking Tour

10:00 am - 08/19/2017

@ Columbus Landmarks Foundation

61 Jefferson Ave
Columbus OH  43215



Join Columbus Landmarks and the Eastgate Garden Civic Association for a historic walking tour celebrating the Eastgate Centennial!

Laid out by William Pitkin, a planner who helped create Upper Arlington and Shaker Heights, Ohio, the Eastgate neighborhood was ahead of its time in its “suburban” layout—boulevards, park-like settings, and meandering streets. Additonally, Eastgate’s rich Africentric and Eurocentric history and architecture--involving early Franklin County settlers, numerous mills and lumber businesses, Ohio State University presidents and educators, and no less than six Tuskegee airmen—makes it a neighborhood whose extraordinary past reflects many diverse stories.

The tour begins at the Nelson Mill historic marker at the corner of Nelson Road and Clifton Avenue (Clifton Avenue turns into Greenway South). Parking is available in nearby Nelson Park, 430 N Nelson Rd. Columbus, OH 43219, a Columbus Recreation and Parks site.

Following the tour and from noon to 4 p.m. you are invited to a neighborhood Street Festival on Millbrook Way at Nelson Road with food and entertainment. Join in and meet today's welcoming Eastgate residents!
