Happy Holidays!

With many people gathered around their trees today, the Local History Department wanted to share the image of a local Christmas tree from 1923 from the Donnell family.

Levi Donnell served as mayor for over twenty years from 1845 to 1869. He was also one of the founding members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Columbus. Donnell’s son, William P. Donnell, was editor of the Columbus Whig newspaper in 1847 and his grandson, Emmett S. Donnell, also served as mayor in 1896 and then was re-elected from 1909 to 1913.
