Work to start Columbia happened 50 years ago this month

     The picture above shows the area around the barn next to Wilde Lake 50 years ago. The Columbia Archives sent out this information:
"After years of planning, work on Columbia started in July 1966 as bulldozers began clearing and transforming a low-lying vale into Wilde Lake and carving out the major roads. Dedication of the lake, which marked the official beginning of Columbia, took place 11 months later in June 1967. "

What the area looks like today
