What places in Columbia do you want to make sure get remembered, preserved or celebrated? As Columbia grows and changes, we want to hear from you about places in town:

  • You have personal history or a special connection with
  • You wish were still around or hadn’t changed
  • With a history you’re curious about

Say as much or as little as you like. Make sure you include your name and the name or location of your place. Pictures of the place are welcome as well.

For inspiration, see reader Bob Taylor’s tribute to the Niedermeyer building, and see lists of notable historic properties in Columbia for 2011, 2012 and 2013.
