If you can't read this, it's Circa 1886.

Some local history

Today, I was downtown actually looking for a barber - have to keep my curly locks in check you know. Wouldn't want to give the impression of a travelling vagabond!.

So, in the process, I ran across a few historical sites. I would have included a picture of the historic courthouse, but it was completely covered by scaffolding, as they are in the process of renovating the structure. Wouldn't have been much to see.

Columbus has a population of 3916, and as you could imagine, has plenty of history and historical features. A few of the older houses are quite picturesque, but there are also a lot of, shall we say, shanty looking houses as well.

This time of year there is not much color in the area - i.e. greenery - as the majority of trees are deciduous, and there are obviously no flowers to speak of, nor even green grass. Pretty much an earthy, brownish tone throughout.

The pictures offer a fairly decent explanation, but at the time I was writing this, (I'm down at the community building) I didn't have the correct brochure on the Opera House, so I'll finish that later. Okay, so after finding the brochure I had at the trailer, turns out it is the same one. So, sorry, that's it. All I know is that there is a monthly dinner show at this building.
