Broad Street: 1888-4/8/1961: The reason for this home’s demolition is unknown. 4 years after it was demolished, the site was bought by an entity called West Park Shopping Center, Inc.

Those plans never happened and the lot remained empty until 1987, when an office building was constructed.

11. Conrad C. Born House: 1747 Bryden Road: Unknown: A whole lot is unknown about this house. The old photo lists it as having been built in 1914. However, the Franklin County Auditor lists the existing house as having been built in 1900. Obviously both cannot be true, but the Auditor lists the same ownership as the old photo, so this is the correct address. The original house in the photo no longer exists. When it was built and when it was demolished remains a mystery.

3. Frederick Fieser House: 75 Hamilton Avenue: 1885-Probably around 1960. There is actually some question as to when this house was demolished. Historic aerials show 2 homes on the large lot that now holds this address. The southern house was demolished around 1960, and the northern house remained until about 1987. There is one clue that may help identify which was which- the sidewalk in the 1892 photo. It splits into a sort of Y shape. In the 2014 photo, you can see remnants of this sidewalk, indicating that the southern home was actually 75 N. Hamilton, demolished for unknown reasons around 1960.

Either way, the site was sold again in 1973 and remained a vacant lot until 2017, when a new single-family home was built on the site.

    Thanks for this list. I’m in the process of restoring my historic home and I was looking at the Sanborn Maps of the neighborhood. I saw there were two prominent structures that no longer exist and I knew they had to be something spectacular based on the footprint. One of them listed on your site here: 1114 E Broad, and another at 1074 E Broad – the Prentiss-Tulford house. seen here: http://www.uer.ca/locations/show.asp?locid=20557 Such a loss! Very sad!

    • admin

      Yeah, while large-scale demolitions in neighborhoods, especially of historically significant homes, is mostly in the past, they still happen. East Broad used to be completely lined with magnificent homes. The City is actually directly responsible for most of them being demolished, rather than private interests. For one city office building, upwards of 25 homes were demolished, all of which were as grand as the linked one. The office building in question is typical 1950s-1960s ugly, utilitarian box architecture, but most of the actual site is, unsurprisingly, a giant surface parking lot.

      In any case, I’m glad you like the page. I am continuously finding more stuff to add to the historic building pages, so they’re about due for another update.

  • Ben Esthus

    These are some awesome photos! Where did you find them?

    • admin

      I have found them in multiple places, but good sources have been local libraries and the Library of Congress, among others. So far, I have about 300 houses on these pages, and have lots more to add in the future. I added several dozen in the last update.

    I’m looking for a photograph of May Elizabeth Cook’s House, 1550 Clifford Ave. Her kiln and studio were built around 1910. Her living quarters were added in 1922

  • deanna dennis

    Your research is incredible. What was your source?

    • admin

      I use multiples sources, from the Columbus library system to the National Library of Congress to newspapers, etc.

  • Greg Warren

    This is amazing research! Do you have any data on the East Long area near 21st? There are some beautiful old homes there and vacant lots as well that I’d be interested in learning more about.

    • admin

      Hi, glad you like it. Was there a particular address in the area you wanted information about?

  • Ryan Dolan

    Cool photos. Seems that a lot of these came from the Columbus library resources.

    Looked up a lot of great information about 57 winner ave “John Cashatt’s house” that my wife and I own. In the process of try to bring this old girl back to her original appeal. Love the community and the area. Great live around these historical gems.
