Old North Columbus Tavern Tour

June 20, 2019 6:30 pm @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Funny how the founder of North Columbus in the 1840s was named “Beers” … David Beers to be exact. Join us to explore this historic crossroads where Civil War soldiers from Camp Thomas once drank; Welsh blacksmiths quenched their thirst; Prohibition shut down nine speakeasies; Red Men assembled for 100 years; and Pat Murnan, Columbus’ only true gangster, operated a casino. This is a guided walking tavern tour with three stops where you will have the opportunity to order a drink (on you), enjoy light snacks (on us), and hear tales of stage coach drivers, Army deserters, streetcar motormen, lady undertakers, poets, flappers and captives … all along a short stretch of interesting and well-preserved 19th century buildings. Tour will be led by Doreen Uhas Sauer and Tom Betti, co-authors of Historic Columbus Taverns.
