The Main Bar's demolition is a blow to Columbus' historic preservation

130 years of history were recently reduced to a pile of bricks, which had been standing since Main Street out front had been made of brick, too.

  • Such is the epitaph for The Main Bar, built in 1890 and demolished to add seven spaces to a parking lot.

Why it matters: The demolition marks another failure for historic preservation in Columbus, which has seen a growing number of noteworthy sites torn down in recent decades in the name of development.
