Columbus, Ohio: Two Centuries of Business and Environmental Change

Join Mansel Blackford for a discussion about how a major midwestern city developed economically, spatially, and socially, and what the environmental consequences have been, from its founding in 1812 to the present day. He’ll share stories of Columbus’s evolution from an isolated frontier village to a modern metropolis which remains one of the few thriving cities in the Midwest.

Mansel Blackford is Professor Emeritus in the Department of History at The Ohio State University.
