This historic building is beautiful. Most of the beautiful machinery, and iron products on display, are impossible to get to, however. It's all showcased behind class. The Trade Center hosts various events all the time, every year! It's actually surprising how difficult is to get a photo that captures the spirit of the place. In the end, we got a nice sweet shot out front.
The largest space in the Columbus downtown area for large gatherings indoors. The staff have been helpful when I have needed them at events. It is an historic location with attached parking garage. (Be careful if you park in the garage, the entrance is at an odd angle and some low riding cars have scraped the front/back of the underside of the car. Also the turn, if you run over the little concrete spot just inside the entrance, can mess up your tire if you run over it too many times.)
