Christopher Columbus Statue Removed from Outside Columbus City Hall

It took less than three hours to remove the statue

The statue of Christopher Columbus that sat on the Broad Street side of Columbus City Hall has been removed after Mayor Andrew Ginther called for it to come down.

On June 18, Ginther announced the statue would be removed saying it does not represent the values of the city. He asked the Columbus Art Commission to launch a community-driven process to embrace diversity. 

The statue was a gift from the people of Genoa, Italy in 1955.
