Advocate for the Mt.Vernon- Taylor Building

February 15 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

“How will we know it’s us without our past?” – John Steinbeck, Grapes of Wrath

At the intersection of Mt.Vernon and Taylor, the Mount Vernon Avenue Commercial Building (1900) is under threat of demolition. This building could be demolished to create a turn lane!** As one of the last remaining historic commercial buildings in this area of the East of Columbus, we want to promote preservation by making this our heart bomb building for 2020! #IHeartSavingPlaces

Meet us outside the building to chat preservation, write a letter to PACT to tell them that the building must be preserved, drink a complimentary warm beverage, learn some fun facts about the history of the East Side and have a good time!

The Mount Vernon Avenue Commercial Building is a neighborhood treasure and started out as a boarding house for women, and evolved into company offices, a barber shop, a drug store, a laundromat and most recently an art gallery! This building deserves to be preserved! #thisplacematters

The Mount Vernon Avenue Commercial Building has been on the Columbus Landmarks Endangered Places List. You can read more information about the building on their website. http://columbuslandmarks.org/mt-vernon-comm-building/

All ages are welcome at Young Ohio Preservationists events.
