TOUR SUMMARYIn the heart of Columbus today is the area known as Midtown. This district is rich in history and beauty with
antebellum homes, serene parks, and elaborate fountains.
This tour features several stops to enjoy local art galleries and history.
Midtown is where Camp Benning was started. It later was moved and renamed Fort Benning. General Henry Benning, for whom Fort Benning is named after, lived in this district. His former house still stands.
The world famous author, Carson McCullers, was raised in this district. A new center is named after her. Many local artists display their works in picturesque galleries throughout Midtown.
Take a moment of serenity walking into and through a labyrinth.
