A brief annual meeting of the CHS will be held in the auditorium of the downtown branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library and will precede the program “A Tale of Two Lost Landmarks, the Kelley Mansion and the Christopher Inn,” in the same room. The annual meeting begins at 6:45.
Beginning at 7 pm, CHS board member Bob Hunter interviews retired local architect, Clyde Gosnell, about his design of the Christopher Inn and the destruction of the Kelley Mansion, the historic home which occupied the site before that. Gosnell will show some artifacts from the historic, circular Broad Street hotel, which was torn down in 1988. Gosnell was also instrumental in saving the Ohio Theater.
