Unoriginal place names in Indiana…and more pics from my trip

A few more pics from my recent trip to Columbus, Indiana.

Once again, I enjoyed my time in this city to the south of Indianapolis, and I like Indiana in general. 

My only problem with the Hoosier State is that Indiana is absolutely unoriginal when it comes to place names. 

Interesting architecture in downtown Columbus, Indiana

Columbus, to cite the most pertinent example, is the name of the state capital of neighboring Ohio. 

Other geographic plagiarisms in Indiana include Milan, Versailles, Nashville, and Edinburgh. 

There is even a Cincinnati, Indiana. (For those of you not from the Midwest, Cincinnati is a city in Ohio, on the Ohio-Indiana border.)

There were what appeared to be Christmas tree lights wrapped around all the tree trunks in the downtown area…in February. Not sure what was up with that.

The pics below are from Armistice Park, just outside the Columbus city limits.
