Worth a stop if you are in the area. It is a small park, but tells the story of the area, the river, industry, etc. It is across the street from the Coca Cola Space Museum which is accessable via the Riverwalk, so it is worth a stop if you are strolling along. Parking is tight in that area, you... More

We saw this area on our historic bike tour (found on Trip Advisor) with Dr. G, a history professor, and he made it way more interesting. He explained what the statues meant and even knows the man who created them. The water way signifies the Chattahoochee, including the Piedmont plateau. We then explored the historic homes district and again, learned... More

The Heritage Corner is just a tranquil park on the corner of Broadway and 7th. It is in a location that has seen a lot of renovation to the downtown area. I enjoyed the park and there are a few odds and ends that highlight the history of the area including a brick kiln, a turbine generator from the dam... More

This one square block in Columbus showcases the history of the city. Both textile making and iron works dominated in this area. The park really is a must for history buffs. Just a short walk from the Visitor Center.

I prowl Uptown Columbus with animal grace at least 5 days a week. And I frequently end up in this area. Everything in this park assaults the senses with crazy-to-look at delights. I don't know what the beehive thing is. A kiln? A bread oven? Clay igloo. No clue. I don't read the signs- Sometimes you just have to appreciate... More

The area is filled with historic houses. The street is a nice enough area to take a leisurely stroll around. The houses are not as nice as some of the historic downtown areas in other southern cities. Definitely worth a look if you are in the area.

Beautiful little park. Tons of historical information and beautiful waterfall. Learning the history of the masonry was a great experience.

Some of the earliest houses built in Columbus. Inexpensive tour that includes the house where James Pemberton invented the formula for Coca-Cola.

First and most importantly it's free to walk around! The area has an interesting history and worth exploring for a few hours especially on a nice day!
