David Rothschild House, 1886, Columbus

Though known today as the Rothschild-Pound House, and operating as a very nice bed and breakfast inn under that name, a brief review of the National Register of Historic Places nomination form suggests both a different date of construction and a more varied provenance. [I’m not disputing others, just using the data I have access to, which I’ll gladly update as I learn more]. The house was built by N. P. Banks, vice-president of the Columbus Investment Company. Wholesale grocer J. B. Tarver bought the house in 1904. In 1910, textile manufacturer David Rothschild purchased the home, which remained in his family until 1958.
