Other things to see in Columbus, Wisconsin

posted by Todd

Besides stopping in to visit the Dunbar popcorn wagon we also did a little sightseeing in Columbus. Directly across the street from where the wagon was displayed was an architectural gem, a Louis Sullivan designed bank. In the courthouse, they honored their past by commissioning paintings done to show different periods in Columbus history. Their dedication to preserving the past earned the downtown area the special distinction of having three solid blocks on the historic register. When the movie Public Enemy about the life John Dillinger was looking for a historic back drop they chose Columbus since they didn't have to make major changes. I was even impressed they had a store that specialize in original period clothing.
