Forbidden City Tour

When: October 7, 2017 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
October 7, 2017 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm America/New York Timezone
Fortner Upholstering (Former Seagrave plant)
2050 S High St
Columbus, OH 43207

In the “spirit” of Forbidden City tours of the 1980s, we will again explore the otherwise unknown and unseen side of Columbus buildings. This walking tour (and we stress walking even though we are touring one large site) will wind in and out of Columbus’ oldest remaining industrial buildings that have fascinated those who drive South High Street—the former Seagrave Fire Apparatus manufacturing plant. Fortner Upholstering, an 88-year-old Columbus maker of upholstered furniture, has moved into the c1890 complex on the South Side that started out as the home of horse-drawn fire carriages.
