  • It's hard to find parking if this is something that you'd really want to see. It is really a big gavel! Nice and shiny. We checked it out on our way to Cosi.  more »
  • We decided to explore Columbus a little. This is a neat attraction but not much to see in the cold months with the fountain is not full. I suggest pairing this site with a walk down in the nearby park...  more »
  • I was at a meeting in the building and during a lunch break, I looked out the terrace area...WOW! This is a beautiful, shiny object!  more »

  • Sometimes ostentatiously referred to as the World's Largest Gavel (though Guinness does not recognize it as such), this 30 foot long sculpture sits in a shallow reflecting pool next to the Supreme Court of Ohio. It was installed in 2008 by Andrew F. Scott and commissioned by the Ohio State Bar Association.
  • It'll make you feel small when you think about how big the world is.
  • It is what it says-a very large gavel.
  • Pool was already drained for winter by the end of September. Still interesting to see.
  • Gavel is huge and the surrounding area is nice.
