The settlers who built Columbia on the low limestone bluffs of the Duck River in 1807 were a determined lot. A destructive flood, Native American threats and a series of earthquakes did not frighten them away.
In a region of fertile farmland, bluegrass meadows and wooded hills, Columbia boasts one of the state's richest collections of architecturally significant homes and plantations in five historic districts. In early December historic antebellum and Federal homes are decorated for the holidays and open to the public during the Maury Christmas Historic Homes Tour; phone (931) 381-4822 for ticket information.
