Columbus Ohio – Arch City

by Maureen McCabe on November 13, 2007

short north arches

Columbus was known as Arch City long ago because of arches with light bulbs over the main downtown streets that were used to illuminate the streets. The arches were made of wood.


Arches in the Short North that were erected in 2002 (?) reminscent of the arches. The arches in the Short North are made of metal. There were problems with the lights for years. The September 2007 Gallery Hop the lights were reinaugurated. So far so good.


Cap City is another nickname of Columbus Ohio, because it is the capital of Ohio. I believe this photo shows the arch just north of “the Cap” that connects the Short North with Downtown Columbus.
