About Columbus Landmarks


Together we're making a difference

Columbus Landmarks advocates for, promotes and preserves Columbus landmarks and neighborhoods.

Columbus Landmarks was founded in 1977 following the tragic loss of the 1897 Daniel Burnham designed Union Station and the subsequent fight to save the remaining Arch ... and move it twice! Our organization is very fortunate to have an army of supporters including current and former trustees, volunteers, members and friends old and new.

Since 1977, Columbus Landmarks has played an integral role in educating the community, encouraging responsible public and private sector enhancement of historic areas and structures, and promoting the highest standards in the design and construction of new buildings and spaces. Our membership includes 1,000 individuals and corporations who understand that buildings, landscapes and public art provide a sense of identity and community, inspire creativity and enrichment, and contribute to revitalization, sustainability and economic development.
