"Columbus has a world-class collection of modern architecture by master architects. It also has a charming older downtown historic district. The community is in excellent condition and has a fine visitors center in a handsome historic building. It is authentic, unique, and unspoiled."
"Rated just behind New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco for architecture, and has really tried to keep its standard of quality with a visitors center that boasts a work by glass artist Dale Chihuly."
"A jewel in the region, and a model of what a small town can do to differentiate itself from the crowd. This town is truly part of America's architectural heritage."
"I was greatly disturbed by the unchecked growth surrounding the city. The old gem of architectural richness within farmland is lost. While the core retains its integrity, the compromising development of the countryside makes for a terrible gateway."
