Columbus Second Avenue Revitalization Project (MC 120)

Historical Note

The Jaeger Company submitted to the CSU Archives in 1999, the final documentation for thirteen historic properties recorded as the Second Avenue Revitalization Project. The project involved the development of a 54 acre tract on the north end of historic downtown Columbus by Total Systems Services, Inc. (TSYS), who purchased the tract from the city; the redevelopment is known as the TSYS Riverfront Campus.
A 1996 resources survey of the project area identified one National Historic Landmark district, Muscogee Mills, that was associated with the Columbus Historic Riverfront Industrial District, four residences listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and twenty other properties considered to be eligible for listing in the National Register. As a result of the TSYS Riverfront Campus Project, all historical properties located within the project area - with the exception of the antebellum Calhoun-Griffin-Mott house situated within the Muscogee Mills complex - have either been demolished or relocated.

Scope and Sequence

These materials are housed in one box with 13 folders, one for each property documented. Documentation may contain the following materials: written history and description, architectural data forms, measured drawings, sketch floor plans, large format black and white negatives, and slides.
