Columbus celebrated its 200th birthday in 2012, but the area has roots that go back even further. At one point, the city had a rich collection of historic buildings, but over time, many of them have been lost, most between 1950-1980 during the peak of “Urban Renewal”. These pages will try to detail the fates of some of these historic structures.

The following entries are organized as follows: House name or name of prominent former resident if there is one, address, lifespan dates and reason for demolition, if applicable or known. A historic photo and a Google Maps link to the former/current location is also given.

34. James W. Cochran House: 3364 North High Street: Pre-1895-Pre-1971: The location listed was 200′ from High on the southeastern corner of High and E. North Broadway. Aerials dating back to the late 1950s show houses here, but the actual address is further south, at the location of Clinton Elementary. Given that, there is some uncertainty just when this house was demolished. The houses on the immediate corner were demolished sometime between 1957 and 1971, most likely in the 1960s. A parking lot currently exists on the immediate southeast corner.

50. Monticello Apartment House: 934 W. Broad Street: Around 1910-June 12, 1992: By the early 1990s, the Monticello had suffered from lack of maintenance and the occasional arson fire. All tenants were moved by September 1991 as the city worked with a developer to renovate the building. However, on May 3, 1992, an arson fire destroyed large sections of the building only 30 days from closing with the developer to begin renovation work. In a last-ditch effort to save it, a local developer inquired about buying the building and putting in a mixed-use development. However, because of safety concerns, the city refused to wait the time needed to complete engineering/structural studies. The building came down the following week. The site remains a vacant lot.

  • Sequoia Mercier

    Looking for information / photos of structures that once stood at 1297-99 Bryden Road, now an empty lot

    • admin

      Hi. Okay, here’s what I have so far:

      -1297-1299 Bryden Road was demolished between 1976-1977. The property transferred between 2 owners in 1977, so I’m not sure who might’ve been responsible for its demolition.
      -A James E. Dooley lived at the address in 1940 with his wife Alice.

      Other than that, it’s been difficult to find any information on this.

  • Sequoia Mercier

    Thank you so very much, I appreciate your efforts.
