Weracoba/St. Elmo Preservation Society

The Weracoba/St. Elmo Historic District was established in 1994 as a National Register Historic District.  The area, now known as the “Park District”, developed originally as a suburb of the City of Columbus in the early 1900’s and was built around a streetcar rail line that provided transportation to and from the neighborhood from the Downtown area.  As was the trend in that era, the style of houses is a mix of architectural styles which include Georgian Revival, Mission Revival, Tudor, Craftsman and Bungalow.  The neighborhood is now in the center of town with tree-lined streets and a large park as defining characteristics of the area.  In 1996, the neighbors came together to form the Weracoba/St. Elmo Preservation Society, an organization founded to “preserve, protect, and enhance” the neighborhood and its historic and architectural qualities.  As part of that effort, the organization started an event called “ARTS IN THE PARK”, a one day arts and music show that combines visual arts with musical talent.  The event, which recently celebrated its 21st year, is held in and around a bandshell located in the neighborhood park.  The park has always been a recreational area and this event helps to revive the tradition of Sunday afternoon concerts and other recreational activities.  The event is free and open to the public and has activities for all ages.

This event is made possible, in part, by the City of Columbus, through a grant to the Columbus Cultural Arts Alliance
