Columbus: The Story of a City
By Ed Lentz

From the enigmatic Moundbuilders who left their mark in the heart of the Buckeye State to the National Road and Ohio Canal that drew an influx of settlers to the burgeoning capital, Columbus blossomed into an industrial hub that became the world's largest producer of buggies. The Arch City-with its illuminated streetcar arches curving gracefully through downtown-struggled through social and political unrest to thrive on its economic success and grow into diversified capital city.

Ed Lentz, local historian and prolific author of Columbus and central Ohio history, previously worked with the Columbus Landmarks Foundation and the Ohio Historical Society. He currently belongs to the Columbus Historical Society, the Columbus Architecture Foundation, and a number of other neighborhood and civic groups. His compelling narrative, coupled with vivid historic images, is an enlightening, informative portrayal of this central Ohio area.

Arcadia Publishing, the country's leading publisher of local and regional history books, created the Making of America series to celebrate individual communities and their unique contributions to our national character. Books in this series combine comprehensive narrative histories with a selection of vintage photographs, period maps, and antique postcards. Together, they record America's epic story town-by-town, city-by-city.
