Lettering by Betsy Becker

Our city is filled with mysteries, surprises and underappreciated gems. Some linger just below the surface. Others take more digging to find. All provide a jolt of excitement and understanding when discovered, revealing new insights about Columbus’ culture, history and inhabitants. We shine a light on buried museum treasures, the city’s most mysterious private club, even a bizarre final resting place on Ohio State’s campus. Think you know all of Columbus’ secrets? Think again.
