Historic High-points of Columbus

  • The boundaries of Columbus have been expanded eight times since it was founded. The need to broaden the limits of the city was due to the pace of urban growth.
  • Before the city was established, the site that was to become Columbus was called Coweta Reserve. The State of Georgia designated 1,200 acres of land to be used in establishing the city.

Helpful Columbus Resources

  • Pages about city departments, local boards and job opportunities are available at the website of the Columbus Consolidated Government.
  • Renters can get familiar with area business and learn about networking events at the Greater Columbus Georgia Chamber of Commerce website.
