  • Campus Martius Museum
    Built in 1788 as a civilian fortification by the Ohio Company of Associates, Campus Maritus housed some of the first American settlers in what would soon become the state of Ohio. Although the fort was eventually disassembled, the blockhouse of General Rufus Putnam remained as a testament to the fort's important. In 1931, the house was joined by the Campus Maritus Museum, an institution dedicated to giving future generations a glimpse at the lives and migration of Ohio's pioneers, native inhabitants, and historical luminaries. Size: The museum stands three stories high, with exhibits housing more than 100 artifacts that tell the story of Ohio's move from frontier to familiar state during the years from 1788 to 1970.

  • Live Nation
    More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts, musical theater, and competitive musical chairs.
