Something you will never see in Columbia
Living in a town whose history only goes back to the mid 1960's it is interesting to have been spending time in my hometown in Pennsylvania whose history goes back to Indian settlements in the early 1700's. Reminders of these earlier times are all over town. Some of the most interesting are the old hiching posts and steps that were used in the times before cars. The steps made it easier to get into the wagons and coaches that were used to get around town. The one above and below are still here to harken back to an earlier age.
Some of the homes of that time are also still here to see when the town was home to many wealthy town residents.
