Columbus is known for its arches and one in particular stands to this day as a symbol of historic preservation. In the mid-1970s, a small activist group witnessed the overnight demolition of the 1897 Daniel Burnham-designed Union Station and swooped in to save the only remaining arch from the iconic train station. Through this noble effort, Columbus Landmarks was born and the arch stands in McFerson Commons representing not only that fateful event but hope for a future with respect for the past.
Columbus Landmarks is partnering with local business State of Devotion, a proud proponent of preservation, to craft and sell unique products benefiting the preservation cause. Products that include the iconic Union Station Arch and its architectural elements, the rosette and the lion.
