News About The Historic Columbus Indiana Website

 

  • The Historic Columbus Indiana website is asking for financial contributions to help with the costs of hosting, maintaining and growing this site. It cannot continue without outside financial help. If you would like to do your part to ensure this site stays online, please click here.

  • Historic Columbus Indiana relies solely upon your donations. If you have any pictures, yearbooks, or other information you would like to have considered for addition to the site, please email me.

 

  • As you may have noticed, I've been busy changing the look of the website pages. I hope you like the new look!

  • I have updated the More Columbus Indiana Pictures page. It now offers over 100 pictures of Columbus Indiana throughout the 1900's. One of the newest offerings is a 1949 map of Columbus Indiana. Want to see how the city has grown in the last 55 years?

  • Many thanks to Bob Welmer, son of former Columbus Indiana Mayor E. A. Welmer, for sharing his pictures. You can find them posted on the More Columbus Indiana Pictures page.

  • Since the More Columbus Indiana Pictures page is getting so large, it looks like I'm going to have to break up the images and create smaller pages so they don't take as long to load.

  • Thanks to Cindy Clarke for her pictures. I hope to add them to the website in the very near future.

  • Approximately 30 pages from Pictorial Section of The Complete Directory, Bartholomew County, Indiana, 1903-1904 have been added to the website. I'll be adding more as time allows.

  • Crump TheatreAlthough this article regarding Columbus' only existing historic movie theatre has been online for some time now, I have updated it and added additional pictures. The writing of this article is still in the making, so additional information will be posted in the not too distant future...

  • Schwartzkopf Opera House: This article, written by G. Chester Kitzinger, originally appeared in the Evening Republican newspaper on February 10, 1971.

  • A Day In The Life Of...Columbus Indiana! Want to get a taste of what life was like in Columbus Indiana in the late 1800's? Be sure to check this page out!

  • CHS YearbooksThe process of getting all yearbook pages ready for name searching capabilities is coming along slowly. If you search for someone's name on the website's search engine (you'll find this on the Welcome Page) and don't find it, chances are pretty good I haven't gotten around to indexing it. Please be patient.

  • Railroad Enthusiasts:  Phil Anderson, one time resident of Columbus and graduate from CHS in 1959 has put together a great website regarding the history of the J M & I Railroad. This website also offers railroad history of the Columbus Indiana area.

  • Things In The Works:  I have pretty much finished the article regarding the life of one of Columbus Indiana's most famous as well as forgotten citizens: John Crump. This article is the first in a series that will highlight those pioneering individuals that helped shape Columbus Indiana into what it is today. I am reworking the rough draft, and hope to post it to the site very soon. Also, a brief history of the Columbus Drive In (one mile north on 31-A) will be available in the not too distant future.

  • If any of you would like to try your hand at writing a piece for this website, I encourage you to submit your ideas. Drop me an email and let me know what you have in mind!
