Columbus in Franklin County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Stephen Canneto, Sculptor
On January 2, 1866, Pelatiah Webster Huntington opened his bank at the heart of the Columbus community - the intersection of Broad and High Streets. Since that date, the Huntington National Bank has been committed to serving the people of central Ohio.
The sculpture "Intersect" is a symbol of the Huntington's enduring presence at Broad and High. The sweeping forms of bronze and stainless steel symbolize the merger of culture, commerce, and the community. The water's flow reinforces P.W. Huntington's vision of this corner as "the fountainhead of local industry and enterprise."
