Ohio History Center

Back in September, we visited the Ohio History Museum in Columbus. We've driven by this place so many times, but had never been there. If you've driven through Columbus on I-71, you've probably noticed the interesting architecture of this building.

There was a ton of history to learn about at this center. There were a variety of things on display.

One of the really neat things was a Lustron Home. These were manufactured in Columbus in the 40's 50's. They were made out of porcelain enameled steel. Parker noted that, since the walls could hold magnets, we wouldn't have to use nails on the walls to hang things. Read more about the history of Lustron Homes here: Lustron Homes Brief History
