Columbia SC Homes For Sale
As South Carolina’s most populated cities, it’s no accident that Columbia is also one of the fastest growing metro areas in the southeastern United States. As home to state, county and local governments, six major universities and the nation’s largest Army training facility, Columbia boasts a strong and vibrant local economy built on a strong foundation. It’s a business-friendly commercial environment, with many family friendly communities, a world-class selection of healthcare facilities and providers, and an active commitment to the arts.
Settled by Europeans in the early 1700s and chose to be the capital of South Carolina in 1786, Columbia was named for Christopher Columbus and was the state’s first planned city (wide streets arranged in a grid pattern) and the second in the United States.
Columbia is located in the center of South Carolina at the junctions of Interstates 20, 26 and 77.
