Affectionately called “Columbus Eclectic,” the combined architectural elements of Greek Revival, Gothic and Italianate come together to form a most welcoming style. Beautiful woodwork, mirrored glass doorknobs, a three-story cupola and even original bedroom closets add to its allure.

ROSEWOOD MANOR AND GARDENS
719 7th Street North
This home boasts a Greek Revival façade with a Federal influence and reigns over four-and-a-half acres of landscaped lawn, including 3,000 boxwoods. Like many homes in Columbus, it was built on a hill, as low places were considered unhealthy. Rosewood Manor was built for a Yankee bride who would not occupy it; she claimed vapors were unhealthy and returned North.
circa 1835 / Mr. and Mrs. Dewitt Hicks / National Register
620 2nd Street South
Colonnade Garden is typical of the 1860s, featuring a boxwood maze, pleasure garden, formal area with fountains, kitchen and herb garden, fruits and berries. Walk through to enjoy the flowers blooming in the footprints of each gardener who lived here in the past.
circa 1840 / Dr. and Mrs. Ryan Hill / National Register
