Join guest guide Elise Meyers Walker, co-author of a dozen local histories including “Inside the Ohio Penitentiary”, “Historic Columbus Crimes”, and “Wicked Columbus”, on this 2 hour walking tour of the district.

Today the Arena District – home to Huntington Park, Nationwide Arena and the North Market – is a destination for sports, concerts, and fun. However many who live and work in this vibrant area just north of downtown are unaware of its long, dark history of crime, scandal, violence, and untimely demise.  Come with us as we reveal these stories while strolling among the remnants of the Ohio Penitentiary, Old North Cemetery, Union Station, and much more.

Tour spots are limited so reserve yours today! Autographed books will be available for purchase during the tour.
