Columbus Monthly at 40

Columbus Monthly Staff

We, you and Columbus have come a long way since Columbus Monthly was first published in June 1975. We've been through disco, mayors and governors, the dawn of the computer age, and more restaurant meals and Ohio State athletes than we can count. It's been a great ride so far-here's to another 40!
