A year after Maury County's organization in 1807, land in Columbia went on sale to settlers. The original town comprised just four blocks on the south bank of the Duck River, and in 1850 the town's population was just under 3,000 people. The city continued to grow throughout the following decades. In the 1930s, the Tennessee Electric Power Company erected a 572-foot gravity dam on the Duck River, which was the only source of water for the area for years.

The Old Columbia Dam still stands and is one of the city's many historic sites. Today, the cities of Maury County, including Mount Pleasant, Columbia, and Spring Hill, are hubs for retail stores and places to eat. Maury County has 68 properties on the National Register of Historic Places, 38 of which are in Columbia. Two are National Historic Landmarks.

Sites to See and Things to Do in Columbia, TN

The James K Polk Ancestral Home located at 301 West 7th Street is one of the many historic sites in Columbia. It is the only surviving home of President James K. Polk other than the White House. The property built in 1816 by Samuel Polk is on the National Register of Historic Places and holds a designation as a National Historic Landmark, which it received in 1961. None of the outbuildings from Polk's time are still surviving, so the kitchen is a reproduction.

James K. Polk lived in this home for several years as an adult before beginning his career in politics. He left the property in 1819 when he went to Nashville to study law and served at his home again after he returned to Columbia to open his law practice.

If historic plantations interest you, the Rippavilla Plantation 9 miles away in Spring Hill is a must-see. Built in 1852, the plantation is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is open as a house museum to visitors Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. This remarkable specimen from its time period features beautiful white columns and red bricks with black contrasting shutters.

Rattle and Snap is another plantation located 10 miles away in Mount Pleasant. It received its unusual name because William Polk won the land on which the property stands from the Tennessee Governor in a game of challenge called "Rattle and Snap." The Polk family owned the property, although the president never lived there. It is still a private residence, but you can view the historic site by making an appointment. The Greek Revival mansion received its designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1971.

If you visit Columbia in April, you can check out Mule Day, a four-day festival dating back to the 1840s that celebrates mules and Appalachian culture. The event attracts more than 200,000 people and culminates with the Mule Day Parade.

If you're a wine connoisseur, stop by one of the many local wineries, such as Amber Falls Winery, Keg Springs Winery, or Natchez Hills Winery, for a tasting.
