Area residents interested in saving the historic Crump theater in downtown Columbus got a chance to take a look at the inside of the historic structure during an event Wednesday evening. Jessica Schnepp is the administrator for the “Save The Crump” Facebook group. She coordinated the event to celebrate 130 years for the building. Schnepp explains why the event was held.

The stage, seating area and balcony were closed off to visitors. Visitors milled around the lobby and in front of the building.

Schnepp says that, currently, there is no plan in place to rehabilitate the building.

More than 100 people visited the Crump during Wednesday night’s event.
