Inscription
Columbia, the "gem of the southern mines," became a town of 4000 to 5000 in the 1850s, following the discovery of gold here by the Hildreth party March 27, 1850. Gold shipments, estimated at $87,000,000, declined rapidly after 1858 but Columbia never became a ?ghost town.'Columbia State Historic State Park was created in 1945 to preserve its historic buildings and sites.
