Columbus Today 

Columbus is a community with one foot planted firmly in the 19th century and the other in the modern era. One can’t help but slow down to take in the quiet surroundings, with plenty of green space and the Crawfish River helping to define the area. For visitors to the Carriage Festival competition on Father’s Day weekend, get a taste of both past and present when you’re in town by setting aside a few hours to shop the state’s largest antique mall, visit the Christopher Columbus Museum, and enjoy small-town cafes and lodging. Think of Columbus as “renaissance in motion.” For more information: www.
