As the oldest neighborhood in Columbus, Franklinton (founded 1797) has the oldest ghost stories and legends in the city. Things go bump in the night in the buildings that withstood the devastating 1913 flood, and early spirits roam “the Bottoms,” as it was known. No wonder Thurston the Magician was born on the West Side, and the apartment he bought for his family still stands. Since spirits are known to be disturbed when change occurs, who better to lead the tour than Jim Sweeney, Columbus Landmarks Foundation trustee and Franklinton storyteller who has lived, breathed, and helped oversee the changes. Head to Strongwater early for dinner before or plan to stop by for a night cap when the tour ends back there.
