Our January monthly program revealed the story of the uncertain, and often stressful, 13-year struggle to secure, preserve, and renovate the Harrison House—this jewel of Franklinton history now owned by the City of Columbus.
This month, we will explore the stories of the 18 families, individuals, and the organization that claimed the land and the house over its 223-year history dating from the days when John Adams was president. What do we know of these people? What clues can we unravel by comparing deed information with the known historical events of Franklinton, our state, and our nation?
