Join authors Doreen Uhas Sauer and Tom Betti as they uncover many interesting, lost, and forgotten landmarks of Columbus like the Walk of Wonders and the Chittenden Hotel.

As the crossroads city of the Midwest, Columbus has always thrived. Over the years, many of the city’s most important and most beautiful buildings—packed with marble, ornate metalwork, painted ceilings and glitz and glamour—have been reduced to dust or left in disrepair. Union Station and stately mansions of well-to-do industrialists are no longer there to tell the story of the city. The Alfred Kelley Mansion, the Chittenden Hotel, the Franklin County Courthouse and the Walk of Wonders in the Great Western Shopping Center were lost, but the palatial Ohio Theatre and the modest Captain Eddie Rickenbacker Home, both designated National Historic Landmarks, were saved.

Tom Betti and Doreen Uhas Sauer, authors of Historic Hotels of Columbus and Historic Taverns of Columbus, recapture stories and memories of a forgotten Columbus.

Doreen Uhas Sauer is a longtime educator associated with Columbus City Schools and a past Ohio Teacher of the Year. She has served as board president for the Columbus Landmarks Foundation and has received statewide recognition for her work in preservation education.

Tom Betti is dedicated to bringing history to life through entertaining storytelling. He served on the board of Columbus Landmarks Foundation for two full terms and chaired the Education Committee. Tom was lead researcher on the National Register of Historic Places nominations for both the Hartman Hotel Building and the Athletic Club of Columbus.

Copies of the book will be available for sale.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
