Columbus is the largest city in the state of Ohio and among the largest cities in the entire United States of America. Columbus serves both as the county seat of Franklin County and the capital of the state of Ohio, making it the social, economic, and political center of the region. Columbus takes its name from arguably the most famous explorer in the history of the world, Christopher Columbus, and is situated at the crossing of the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers. Columbus bears two major nicknames – the Arch City and the Discovery City, and was originally founded in the year eighteen twelve. The city proper area of Columbus has a population of approximately seven hundred forty seven thousand residents, an increase of roughly thirty five thousand persons since the last census was taken, while the metropolitan area of Columbus has a population about two and a half times as large.
Columbus was originally inhabited by Native American cultures such as the Miami, Delaware, Shawnee, Mingo, and Wyandot tribes, who were especially well known for their burial mounds. Following a brief period of conflict, European/American influence over the area solidified, leading to the official incorporation of the community in the year eighteen sixteen. Columbus continues to be home to a number of interesting historic sites, including Olde Towne East, Franklinton, the German Village, the Brewery District, and the Victorian Village.
Columbus is home to a particularly impressive abundance of educational opportunities. The Arch City is home to the Columbus City Schools, a number of parochial and private schools, Ohio State University, DeVry University, Columbus State Community College, and Franklin University, among others. Columbus maintains the Columbus Metropolitan Library, and is also home to a number of architecturally significant buildings. Columbus also boasts the Columbus Museum of Art, the Franklin Park Conservatory, the Ohio Historical Center, Inniswood Metro Gardens, Big Darby Creek, and the Chadwick Arboretum.
