3. Frederick Schumacher House: 750 E. Broad Street: 1888-4/1961: After Frederick died in 1957, his estate- including the mansion- eventually landed in the hands of Huntington National Bank, which acted as a trustee and executor of his will. Huntington saw no real value in keeping the house given the attitudes, or lack thereof, toward historic preservation. It was merely another old house in the way of progress, and so one of the most impressive mansions in Columbus history was torn down over the course of a week. In its place, the bank and its partners proposed a 12-story, 200-room “luxury” hotel. However, because of zoning conflicts, the city pushed for offices or other development instead. Over time, nothing came of any proposals. It would be 26 years before the site had any other development, the current nondescript office building.
