View of Flytown neighborhood in Columbus, Ohio
Description: View of the Flytown neighborhood in Columbus, Ohio, ca. 1920. An industrial boom happened in Flytown during the 1870s and continued through the 1920s, as cheap land attracted foundries, lumberyards, and railroads to the area. As European immigrants and African American migrants from the south settled in the area, Flytown became one of the most diverse portions of Columbus. View on Ohio Memory.
