A new book about the history of the Clintonville (home to Portfolio!) and Beechwold neighborhoods of Columbus will be released today, January 12th. The 128-page book belongs to the “Images of America” series from Arcadia Publishing and was written by longtime local Clintonville resident, Shirley Hyatt. The book’s official website details the evolution of these neighborhoods from farmland to crossroads to thriving residential communities. For anyone interested in picking up a copy, you can also find it on Amazon for $14.95 plus shipping. Additionally, you can meet the author this Saturday, January 17th at Colonial Candy Shop (3519 N. High St). Shirley Hyatt will be available from 1:00-2:30 to chat about the book and answer questions.
