The History of Columbia
Serving as both the state capital and the count seat of Richland County, Columbia was founded by the state legislature in 1786.
After much debate between the names "Washington" and "Columbia", the final vote was for "Columbia" (named after the female personification of the U.S. - think Uncle Sam's female counterpart).
Toward the end of the Civil War, most of Columbia was destroyed by fire as Union troops approached. After the war, the burning of the city was a point of controversy with Sherman denying that he started the fire and blamed it on Confederate soldiers.
The 20th century saw Columbia grow into a textile manufacturing powerhouse, but the city was also haunted by its past in navigating through the civil rights era.
The 21st century has been kinder to Columbia with significant effort being put into downtown revitalization. Many historic buildings in the Congaree Vista district have been rehabilitated with some being repurposed for commercial use.
