Columbus Landmarks Foundation Celebrates Buildings Reborn At The Seagrave Building

Anyone who knows me knows that you should never get me started on Columbus’ bad habit of tearing down beautiful, old buildings.

“How can we build a history when we tear down anything built before 1970,” you’ll hear me randomly ranting whenever someone mentions former Columbus structures like the iconic Union Station. Seriously though, that should never have been torn down.

Luckily for lovers of historical buildings like myself, the Columbus Landmarks Foundation exists. Luckily for you, a behind the scenes tour of one of the most interesting buildings in Columbus will be the setting for the 2018 Columbus Landmarks Buildings Reborn gala.

The building was constructed over a century ago and it was the site of the Seagrave Corporation, the nation’s largest manufacturer of firefighting equipment. Now, thanks to Fortner Upholstering, the building is home to an awesome group of creative businesses including the new office of our team here at Columbus Navigator.

Tickets to the annual event include live bluegrass music from Slate Ridge Bluegrass Band, a gourmet picnic bbq from Two Caterers, and carefully crafted sweet tea cocktails. Proceeds from your ticket purchase will support the amazing work that Columbus Landmarks does, advocating for historic preservation around central Ohio. Tickets are $75/members and $100/non-members.

The event will take place on July 19, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. A tour of the building will be available for attendees, so be sure to pop in and say hello as you get a closer look at this amazing building that we’re lucky enough to call home.
