Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives

The Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives was created to collect, conserve, preserve, and promote the use of records that document the architecture, engineering, and arts associated with the built environment of Columbus, Indiana and Bartholomew County. The archives’ collection includes materials on both Historical and Modernist projects, including many of the 60 plus designs by world famous architects of the last half century that are located in Bartholomew County.

The digital collection presented here showcases the planning and execution of 5 Bartholomew County building projects: Columbus Regional Hospital, Central Middle School, Mill Race Park, BCSC Administration Building, and Columbus Learning Center. The story of how these projects progressed from initial sketches through construction is told in these digitized sketches, photographs, blueprints and various planning and construction documents.
