Another place to visit with history galore within short walking distance not far from the river walk and local restaurants. Great way to see and experience the local past while exercising after eating.

This place is a hidden gem next to the makerspace and across the street from the Coco-cola Science center. Self guided tour with plaques gives you a dose of history. Seeing the cabin and the brick oven is cool. The water feature is beautiful.

I love local history about the town that I live and visit. Heritage Corner offers a free, low-key insight to the history of Columbus, Georgia. The venue is close to the Riverwalk and other Uptown attractions. Children like to run around the open spaces.

There is so much history to Columbus that we never new about. After visiting Heritage Corner, we understood so much more. It provides a great summation of Columbus, the dams, agriculture, and how the city developed through time. Great place for kids to learn.

Was a beautiful day and this little park was so peaceful. The fountain was flowing and it was just so nice to take in and relax. A little gem that you just stumble upon.
