About: columbus, indiana

General John Tipton bought the land now known as the city of Columbus, and named the town Tiptonia. When residents changed the town name to Columbus a year later, Tipton was so upset he moved. When he became the Highway Commissioner of Indiana and was given the task of building a highway from Indianapolis, IN to Louisville, KY, he constructed the first ever bypass road. Notable residents of Columbus have included Jamie Hyneman (Mythbusters host), shoe designer Chuck Taylor, author Ryan Nerz (Eat This Book), and producer Herbert Wright (StarTrek: The Next Generation).
