COLUMBIA, Gem of the Southern Mines is a real town. In the following pages we will introduce you to the local businesses that help to keep Columbia the Gem that it is.

We offer many unique experiences here from the stage coach, horse and pony rides to candle and soap making. Our sidewalks aren’t concrete, they are the old wooden boardwalks. There are hitching posts out in front of the stores and many times you’ll see a horse tied to one.

Many people are surprised to hear that mining and panning for gold are still viable ways to earn a living here. Columbia is more than a tourist attraction, it’s a living town, we’ll introduce you to the merchants that make up the town core.

We hope we help you become as facinated with Columbia as we are.
