Columbia County

Columbia County, established in 1790, lies along the Savannah River, its lands once home to busy cotton plantations. Quakers settled the area, choosing to name their county for an explorer, Christopher Columbus, rather than for a military man as was often the custom. John Appling, the original pioneer of the area, gave his name to the county seat.
