Fort Hayes photograph
Description: Photograph of a building at Fort Hayes in Columbus, Ohio, ca. 1960. Fort Hayes was established in 1863 as a military post, which housed military forces until 2009. This area was chosen because soon after the Civil War began, there was an imminent need for a military fort in central Ohio. Today, the Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center, a Columbus City Schools magnet high school, stands on the spot once occupied by the Fort. View on Ohio Memory.
