Jeff LaFever talked about the founding and early history of Columbus, Ohio, as he gave a tour of the first half of an exhibit to celebrate the bicentennial of the city’s founding on February 14, 1812. Items shown included a 1910 car that highlighted the role of the city in the history of transportation. The Columbus Historical Society exhibit space was at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI).

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
