Street various interested point to look at. The hemisphere park has some object for the history buff and great to take pictures.

This place is a hidden gem next to the makerspace and across the street from the Coco-cola Science center. Self guided tour with plaques gives you a dose of history. Seeing the cabin and the brick oven is cool. The water feature is beautiful.

I love local history about the town that I live and visit. Heritage Corner offers a free, low-key insight to the history of Columbus, Georgia. The venue is close to the Riverwalk and other Uptown attractions. Children like to run around the open spaces.

If you are strolling through the historic district or visiting the Coca Cola science center it is worth a stop. There are interesting facts and a few neat things to see. It is not really a 'destination' on its on though.

Found this little place while visiting the Coca-Cola Space Science Center across the street. Was really cool to find this history gem nestled along the way. Would be a peaceful place to visit at the end of a stressful day. Not a lot of shade,...More

There is so much history to Columbus that we never new about. After visiting Heritage Corner, we understood so much more. It provides a great summation of Columbus, the dams, agriculture, and how the city developed through time. Great place for kids to learn.

Afternoon on weekends are great to stroll around uptown Columbus. Around the Riverwalk and down past the IronWorks.

Was a beautiful day and this little park was so peaceful. The fountain was flowing and it was just so nice to take in and relax. A little gem that you just stumble upon.

I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this location, but it's nice as part of an uptown walk. When the fountains are actually running, it's nice, but half the time they are shut off.

This is a very interesting place, regardless if it's with family or just friends! Its relaxing to walk around and enjoy the view and to see some of the history.
