    Hey GhostBoy,

    The photo you have connected to this article is COSI at its new location at 333 West Broad Street where Central High once stood.

    The old Franklin County Memorial Hall where COSI stood until 1999 is now the Columbus Board of Health.

    Now, if you can come up with some fun Central High ghost stories we’d love to hear it.
