About This Art Walk

The Merion Village Art Walk will lead you through one of the oldest immigrant enclave neighborhoods located in the Near Southside of Columbus. Experience the streets that formed "Steelton", "Pride" planted on Parsons, and countless buildings by famous Columbus Architects. You will find civil war-era trees, historic small businesses, memories of a tight-knit community, and much more!
