Historic Friendship House Demolished

After a months-long battle, the much talked about and debated fate of the Friendship House has come to an end. The historic home on 7th St North has been demolished. The “Grand Old Lady”, as she has been called by supporters who lobbied to save her, met her demise in the early hours of Wednesday morning with demolition starting before dawn. Owned by First Baptist Church, the now empty lot will be paved and used for parking.







  1. Trust me I know how crooked they are, they say they care about the community but I tried for a long time to get a Children at Play sign on the road I lived on in the city limits and to this day there has not been one put up. What will it take for they to put one up, a child getting hit? I sat watched people drag race down that road and no need to call the police cause the tickets get thrown out anyways.

  2. It’s sad that a parking lot is more important to that church than maintaining the historic relics that make this town a major tourist destination during the pilgrimage! Without these historic homes and sites the town will surely shrivel up and die because Columbus has nothing else to offer. No jobs. No industries. No shopping worth the drive. No restraints worth the money. Nothing! History is all we have…what’s next? Tearing down all the historic homes to put up cheap modern apartment buildings that can be found in any city in the world!

    The Johnny Cash versionis superior to the “Phony Joany” version. “Phony Joany” was a name given by cartoonist Al Capp to one of his characters in Little Abner.

    Al Capp feel into disfavor after propositioning those Alabama co-eds over in Tuscaloosa just a day after speaking at the MSU guest speakers forum in Lee Auditorium. I was there.

    Caplin Kaplan)spelled it “Joanie Phoanie.” Baez threatened to sue, but never did.

    The Baptists should be ashamed of themselves. All they had to do was to move it somewhere.

    Wow I have never heard such a big stink about this house in all my life. Sure I hate that it is gone, but geez what double standards all of you who are commenting have! And hateful!. It wasn’t that long that a historic house just a block away right on main street was torn down. The owner couldn’t afford to repair it. There were a few who protested its removal, but that was it..no name calling, no harassment, no labeling, and there sure wasn’t the amount of news coverage this is getting. I’m not ashamed of Columbus, I’m ashamed of the crap stirrers that troll it!


    How f****** dare anyone out there make fun of the Baptists after all they’ve been through!!

    They lost members, their church is deteriorating and they just constructed a new building.

    All you people care about is….. readers and judging them.

    THEY’RE HUMANS! What you don’t realize is that they are making you all this money through charity work and all you do is write a bunch of crap about them.

    They haven’t destroyed a building in years. They’re not knocking down their old church but all you people want is MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE!.

    LEAVE THEM ALONE! You are lucky they even made a parking lot for you BASTARDS!

    You about Christianity and say if they were Christians they wouldnt have knocked down that building.

    Speaking of professionalism, when is it professional to publicly bash a church!

    Leave the baptists alone Please…. !
    Leave the baptists alone!…right now!….I mean it.!

    Anyone that has a problem with them you deal with me, because they are not well right now.
