Columbus, the largest city in Ohio, has, since its founding in 1812, been home to many impressive architectural landmarks. The AIA Guide to Columbus, produced by the Columbus Architecture Foundation, highlights the significant buildings and neighborhoods in the Columbus metropolitan area. Skillfully blending architectural interest with historic significance, The AIA Guide to Columbus documents approximately 160 buildings and building groups and is organized geographically. Each chapter provides an opportunity to explore a special area of Columbus' built environment.

The Columbus Architecture Foundation has been affiliated with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Columbus Chapter, for more than thirty years.

The AIA Guide to Columbus identifies buildings designated as historic and those that have won awards, and includes information on architectural styles, excellent photographs, maps, a glossary, and an index. The focus is on easy touring, whether the reader is walking or driving. Students, visitors, and residents with a penchant for knowing more about their city will enjoy discovering the rich heritage of Columbus' downtown, special districts, and neighborhoods.

Building Ohio : A Traveler's Guide to Ohio's Rural Architecture

Jane ware's Second Volume of Building Ohio, subtitled A Traveler's Guide to Ohio's Rural Architecture, is a wonderfully anecdotal revelation of the buildings found in the state's smaller cities and towns, as well as the countryside itself. This is the architecture born of Ohio's great and optimistic pre-1920s energy when the state was near the apex of America's wealth and importance. At some moment in the past, virtually every place in Ohio had money and some of it ended up in buildings, writes Ms. Ware.And so she demonstrates, taking us on a tour that includes churches, schools, factories, castles, frat houses, railroad stations, hog barns, and at least one water treatment plant. We meet the world's only female ironmaster, see Philip Johnson's tool shed, and visit Dave Longaberger's seven-story basket with the 70-ton handles. Building Ohio is filled with stone masons, carpenters, groundkeepers, activists, rehabbers, founders, donors, even a boiler attendant.Ms. Ware's book, the product of eight years plumbing the architectural nooks of Ohio, details the remarkable built landscape of Ohio and the people who left us such a rich heritage. Their work is monumental art, buildings to give us pause -- and to instruct and soothe us with their timeless beauty.

Knox County Bridges

Sale 20% off
Knox County had its beginnings at the confluence of the waters of Center Run with the Kokosing River. This pictorial history of the spanning of area waterways is mostly a story of disasters. Many of the photographs are of the wreckage of failed bridges and what is left of the vehicles that brought them down. They depict a county highway department that was only reactive. The practice was to send the crews out to pick up the pieces and then figure out how to repair or replace the bridge. Changes began to occur with the Silver Bridge disaster in 1967 over the Ohio River, as the federal government instituted inspection of all public bridges at two-year intervals. With the information afforded through inspections and additional funding mechanisms, counties by the mid-1980s had the tools to be proactive toward bridge maintenance. A scheduled plan to inspect structures for repairs or replacement prior to failure began to occur. During this period, construction materials other than timber stronger and longer-lasting materials became the norm, thus saving lives."

Mansfield (Images of America)

Mansfield was established in 1808, when its public square was built in north-central Ohio, carved out of a wilderness inhabited only by tribes of Native Americans and an itinerant nurseryman called Johnny Appleseed. Throughout the 200 years since, Mansfield has always been characterized as a leader in innovation. When agriculture was the nation s mainstay, Mansfield manufactured farming machinery; when the country became industrial, Mansfield rose to strength with new technologies in stoves, streetcars, and steel; and when automobiles rolled into history, they rode on Mansfield tires. As a centralized crossroads where railroads and highways meet, it was known to travelers on the Lincoln Highway or the Pennsylvania Railroad as a charming town of tree-lined streets and church towers. With the rust belt decline of big industry in the late 1900s, Mansfield went through yet another metamorphosis, defining the new American economy of small manufacturing and service industries."

"Oddly delightful . . . From the Blue Hole to the headless chicken, it's a wonderfully wacky page turner." -- Martin Savidge, CNN

The Buckeye State has no shortage of strange, silly, goofy, quirky, eccentric, and just plain weird places, people, and things--if you know where to look. Nobody has looked in more places than Neil Zurcher, the popular TV travel reporter who has driven more than a million miles seeking out the unusual. This book collects his most remarkable finds, including the World's Largest Cuckoo Clock, the nation's only vacuum cleaner museum, Balto the Wonder Dog, the "bottomless" Blue Hole of Casalia, and lots more hard-to-believe stuff!

Zurcher's eye for unique and fun attractions can turn any road trip into a car ride through the Twilight Zone.

Sale 20% off
Forty-five years before the drilling of the famous 1859 Colonel Drake oil well in Pennsylvania, oil was produced and marketed from salt brine wells dug in southeast Ohio. The oil was bottled and sold as a cure-all medicine, Seneca Oil. In 1860, one of the first oil fields in Ohio was discovered approximately 10 miles southeast of these wells. The 1885 discovery of the giant Lima-Indiana oil field set off the oil boom of northwest Ohio, a period of land speculation and rapid oil field development that lasted over 20 years and propelled Ohio into the leading oil-producing state from 1895 to 1903. John D. Rockefeller s Standard Oil of Cleveland built storage tanks, pipelines, and a refinery near Lima. The Ohio Oil Company, now Marathon Oil, was active in the area and still maintains an office in Findlay. The Bremen oil field was discovered in south-central Ohio in 1907, setting off another oil boom, which included drilling within the city limits."

Ohio s Lake Erie wineries and vineyards are rooted in tradition. European immigrants settled on the Lake Erie islands and nearby shoreline in the mid-1800s, and the grape industry flourished in Ohio into the early 20th century. Industrialization from Cleveland to Toledo swallowed up prime growing property along the lakeshore, but many farms continued to grow grapes. During Prohibition, wine making went underground. When it ended, restaurant owners bottled their own fortified wines and some of the wineries started mass producing wine with new equipment. The wines of Ohio, like those all over the eastern United States, were mostly sweet and made from native labrusca grapes. In the 1960s, Ohio s serious winemakers learned how to cultivate European-style vinifera grapes along Lake Erie s shore and on the islands. Chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon grapes now grow alongside Concord and Catawba. Today, more than 40 wineries stretch across northern Ohio."

Pedaling to Lunch : Bike Rides and Bites in Northeast Ohio

Consider a man riding a bicycle. Whoever he is, we can say three things about him. We know he got on the bicycle and started to move. We know that at some point he will stop and get off. Most important of all, we know that if at any point between the beginning and the end of his journey he stops moving and does not get off the bicycle he will fall off it. That is a metaphor for the journey through life. - William Golding, author of Lord of the Files and Rites of Passage Hop on your bicycle, discover Northeast Ohio, and grab a bite to eat along the way. Pedaling to Lunch is your guide to twenty bicycle trips that traverse sixteen counties. You will ride through Burton, Conneaut, Hartville, and Zoar. Pedal past Amish farm land, the vestiges of the Ohio and Erie Canal, the gracious homes of the National Historic Trust, and picturesque covered bridges. Halfway through each ride, you'll have the opportunity to rest and dine at scenic eateries such as the Spread Eagle Tavern, Des Dutch Essenhaus, and the Sunrise CafÃÂ(c). The bicycle rides of Pedaling to Lunch take you on an historic journey across the Western Reserve and its unique sights, including the childhood home of Clarence Darrow; the summer resort where Dean Martin got his start; the farthest point north raided by Confederate troops; the town where the barnstorming pitcher, Alta Weiss, grew up; and the restored residence of Daniel McCook of the Fighting McCooks. Even more, you'll pedal past wineries, old mills, and spacious lakes along the back roads and byways where the flow of life is still serene, and the countryside undeveloped. Pedaling to Lunch includes detailed maps, accurate mileage notations, and precise directions. Purdum, an experienced cyclist who has ridden along U.S. Route 62 from Niagara Falls to El Paso adds his whimsical commentaries and editorial verve to the scenes and miles. The book is rich with interesting facts and snippets about Ohio towns, characters, and events both famous and infamous. A book for novice and expert cyclists alike, Pedaling to Lunch invites readers to jump into the saddle and let Stan Purdum serve as guide to the scenic sights in your own backyard. Save some gas and get some exercise, or imagine it all from the comfort of your armchair.

Sale 20% off
By the mid-1850s, the railroad craze had hit central Ohio. Pioneer railroads that were to evolve into portions of the Baltimore and Ohio, New York Central, and Pennsylvania Railroads connected the state capital, Columbus, with the canals, Lake Erie, and the Ohio River. The region was crisscrossed by numerous other lines by 1880; Columbus became the main hub while other railroad centers included Circleville, Delaware, Mansfield, Mount Vernon, Newark, and Zanesville. Hundreds of depots were built throughout central Ohio to serve railroad passengers and to handle baggage, mail, and freight. Depots became the center of commerce and activity at communities big and small. With the discontinuance of passenger trains across the Buckeye State, many depots disappeared from trackside many simply demolished, others relocated for non-railroad uses. Railroad Depots of Central Ohio offers a pictorial history of selected depots, centering around Columbus and Franklin County, using old postcards and vintage photographs."

Rainbows of Rock, Tables of Stone is an exploration of the natural arches and pillars of Ohio.

The heart of the book is the identification, description, and interpretation of some 83 arches and 18 pillars known to occur in the state. Background information about the bedrock geology of Ohio, the methods of measuring and describing natural arches and pillars, the processes by which these features can be formed, and the ways that they are eventually removed from the landscape provide interesting and valuable context for better understanding the creation, destruction, and study of these unusual elements of the geological landscape. The names and locations of publicly accessible arches and pillars are given. Rainbows of Rock, Tables of Stone is the most extensive statewide review of natural arches and pillars known, and it will almost certainly become a model that will inspire and influence similar compilations for other states.
