History of Columbia Borough

Columbia, PA and surrounding areas were originally populated by the Susquehannock and the Shawnee Indians. The Susquehannocks had villages south of current day Columbia in what is now known as Washington Boro, PA.

In 1788 Samuel Wright had the river side land surveyed and laid out the town. Later renamed Columbia in honor of Christopher Columbus with hopes that the town might be selected as our nations capitol. Columbia also narrowly missed being selected as the PA Capitol to harrisburg, PA. It was also beaten out as the home to the US Auto industry by Detroit Michigan!

In 1834 Columbia was linked by rail to Philadelphia by what came to be known as the Philadelphia and Columbia Railroad.

The 1900's brought industries to Columbia producing goods as diverse as silk & lace to pipe, lumber, and wagons.

Founded in 1977, Columbia is the home to The National Watch and Clock Museum, the only museum in the USA dedicated to the history of timekeeping.
