Culture Walks


Columbus Public Health and the Columbus Landmarks Foundation introduce the new Spirit of Neighborhoods: Culture Walks – a series of free walking tours that celebrate historic Columbus neighborhoods.

The 90 minute walks, which focus on neighborhoods that have shaped the City of Columbus geographically, culturally and socially, include Parsons Avenue, Hanford Village, King-Lincoln and Westgate. The neighborhoods were selected for rich and diverse histories that were impacted by migration, immigration, urbanization, industrialization and marginalization.

Advanced registration is not required. Tours will begin promptly at the time and location listed below. 

Walks will continue in light rain. In the event inclement weather forces the cancellation of the walk, check Columbus Landmarks Foundation’s Facebook page for updates.
