Columbia, South Carolina

Columbia is the largest city and capital of the state of South Carolina in the United States. The town is centrally located in the state at the confluence of the rivers Broad and Saluda to the Congaree River. The city has 133,451 residents (2018) and forms a larger metropolitan area with about 837,000 residents.

The name Columbia is after Kristoffer Columbus who arrived in America in 1492.

Population

51.3 percent of the population is white, 42.2 percent are of African-American descent, 2.2 percent are Asian, 0.3 percent are Pacific Islanders, and 0.25 percent are descendants of North American Indigenous peoples (2010).

Business and culture

The largest employers are the state administration, the health care system, education, data and commerce as well as finance and insurance. Fort Jackson, the U.S. Army's largest fitness center, is located a few miles outside Columbus and also employs many.

Riverbank Zoo & Garden is one of the city's top attractions. Columbus has several parks, including Finlay Park, Congaree National Park, Memorial Park and Riverfront Park.

The University of South Carolina is the largest of four universities, and there are a number of colleges.

Columbia has several theaters, including the Town Theater and The Nickelodean Theater. The city is also the seat of The Columbia City Ballet (from 1961), The Columbia City Jazz Dance Company (from 1990), The Palmetto Opera (from 2003), The South Carolina Philharmonic Orchestra and the Circus Alternacirque (from 2007). The Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center opened in 2004. The Koger Center for the Arts opened in 1989.

Important museums include The South Carolina State Museum, The Columbia Museum of Art, McKissick Museum, Carolina Museum and EdVenture Children's Museum. In the downtown Congaree Vista district there are several historic buildings.

History

Due to its central location, the city was founded in 1786 to replace Charleston as South Carolina's capital. The state assembly had its first meeting in Columbus four years later. Columbia gained city status in 1854. The city's development shot when the Santee Canal opened in 1800 and provided direct access to Charleston to rail traffic made this waterway redundant around 1850. Towards the end of the American Civil War, Columbus was conquered and partially burned by Union troops in 1865.

In the early 1900s, several textile mills were in operation. The first streets were paved in 1908. Especially in 1911-1913 there was great building activity in Columbia. Among other things, it was erected among other bank buildings and hotels, and a shopping district was opened. In 1917, Camp Jackson opened (since 1940 Fort Jackson). By 1930, Columbia had become the centerpiece of a large commercial area. A number of skyscrapers were built in the 1970s and 1980s, and since the late 1980s and early 2000s, a number of historic buildings in the Congaree Vista area have been revitalized. In October 2015, parts of Columbia were severely affected by floods.
