That statue was interesting. I wonder what is the connection with Rome and Ohio.... Cincinnati was of course named after the Roman general Cincinnatus.

Old Franklinton Cemetery

Today not much is left of the Old Franklinton Cemetery other than a few weather-worn headstones and a 26' tall granite obelisk to commemorate the first church established in the area. Lucas Sullivant donated the land and built the church in 1811. The Old Franklinton Cemetery is located on River Street, just off Souder Avenue.

In 1824, Lucas Sullivant died of a fever at the age of 58 and was buried in the Old Franklinton Cemetery, but when the newer Green Lawn Cemetery was created in 1848, Sullivant's descendents had his body disinterred and moved to Green Lawn where his marker proudly stands among the 100s of other Columbus dignitaries that made Columbus the city it is today.

Lucas Sullivant, more than just about anyone else, was responsible for establishing the first permanent, truly American settlement in the Ohio Territory at a time when there was nothing but danger surrounding them. His foresight, industrial and resourceful nature made it possible for future generations to thrive and prosper.

More from Dennison Place..... I Think.

This area is called E.J. Millen Homestead Addition. to the best of my knowledge this area is still considered Dennison Place, although this part of the neighborhood is more populated by off campus student houing and their for isn't as "pretty" as the streets south of King Avenue. Its also home to the Battelle Memorial Insitute













Battelle vvvv

I'm not sure. I was always told it had something to do with some sort of society of some kind during the Revolution.
