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 so much from our guide. Such a fun experience!

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 and some nice statues and sculptures. The water feature in the middle of the park is a dam and is also nice. Around Heritage corner are some of Columbus' most famous and oldest houses. The Pemberton house(founder of Coca-Cola) is one of them. I enjoyed walking through the neighborhood and viewing the houses as much as the park itself. There are plaques and historical markers to highlight what you are seeing.

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 things for what they are. Same goes for the machines- Don't know, don't care. They're things of beauty. One fun fact though. Those familiar with the terms "balls out" or "balls to the wall" will want to inspect these mystery machines closely. Those round, metal things, or "balls" are part of a governor system that kept machines from self-destructing. See, it has nothing whatsoever to do with German leather-metal band Accept.

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.
