      Old North Columbus Tavern Tour

      Funny how the founder of North Columbus in the 1840s was named "Beers" ... David Beers to be exact. Join us to explore this historic crossroads where Civil War soldiers from Camp Thomas once drank; Welsh blacksmiths quenched their thirst; Prohibition shut down nine speakeasies; Red Men assembled for 100 years; and Pat Murnan, Columbus' only true gangster, had a casino. This is a guided walking tavern tour with three stops where you will have the opportunity to order a drink (on you), enjoy light snacks (on us), and hear tales of stage coach drivers, Army deserters, streetcar motormen, lady undertakers, poets, flappers and captives ... all along a short stretch of interesting and well-preserved 19th century buildings. Tour will be led by Doreen Uhas Sauer and Tom Betti, co-authors of Historic Columbus Taverns. Your ticket purchase supports the work of Columbus Landmarks as we advocate for historic preservation and design excellence. We thank you!
