Historic Columbia

EST. 1726

Once Wrights Ferry - now Columbia.

A town founded by a evangelist and entrepreneur John Wright has once again emerged as a hot spot for small businesses to thrive, visitors to enjoy, and for an unforgettable experience in a historic rivertown.

Once positioned for the new location of the Nation’s capital, only to fall one-vote-short, it yet remains a place where slaves once found freedom and hiding places, where the confederates were turned back by a burning bridge, where famous gangsters hid their whiskey… and where more stories made headlines.
