Historic Places

Columbus, Mississippi is a place grounded in Southern hospitality and rich heritage. Settled in 1817 and incorporated in 1821 on the banks of the Tombigbee River, Columbus is where flowers healed a nation following the Civil War. The town provided inspiration for Pulitzer Prize winner and native son Tennessee Williams. It’s the site of America’s first state-funded public university for women – now Mississippi University for Women, with its 23 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.
