I'm particularly proud of this one (and it took some time as there are over 700 addresses in the spreadsheet). This replaces the VERY incomplete and limited list that was here before, and also features a photo gallery and map:

Wow, this is great!

The map is particularly striking because it clearly shows long strings of commercial development along major roads emanating out like spokes from the city centre. These patterns are common in many cities, but they're rarely as pronounced and visible as they are here.

I noticed that too. It was even more apparent when I ran an earlier version of the map with data only through about 1950 or so. Columbus is very much an anomaly in Ohio WRT development patterns in general since its growth has been so much more consistent over time than most other cities in the state.
