Jeff Darbee talked about the German Village area that was part of Columbus, Ohio, since its earliest days. The once prosperous German community declined during World War I and prohibition and was partially demolished before Frank Fetch led preservation efforts in the 1960s.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Columbus, Ohio, on July 9-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
