GERMAN VILLAGE COLUMBUS Just south of downtown Columbus, visitors can immerse them- selves in Old World heritage at German Village. is charming historic district boasts sturdy brick cottages with limestone foundations, win- dow boxes and slate roofs, plus Italianate and Victorian homes. Bou- tique shops and businesses also line the primarily brick streets. Schiller Park, the neighborhood's centerpiece, looks much as it did in 1898. Visitors can start at the historic Meeting Haus and watch an eight- minute video that details the neighborhood's history before hitting the streets on a guided or self-guided walking tour or a motorcoach tour with a step-on guide. Most likely, guided tours will be led by John Clarke, whose fascinating stories are published in his new book, "German Village Stories Behind the Bricks."
