==================================================

Saturday, October 6, 2018 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM,

in front of the Courthouse.

The Discover Columbus Committee would like to announce an event for the whole family.  Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 6th, for the Columbus Heritage Festival on the lawn of the historic Courthouse in Columbus and Gibson St.   Columbus Day is two days after this event, therefore Columbus will adopt this Annualcelebrated day on the 6th.

The Town of Columbus is not named after Christopher Columbus, but for Columbus Mills who settled here. The heritage of our area is rich in arts and crafts; pottery, woodworking, spinning, music, gem mining, farming,  story-telling, and war battles, and much more! Come join us and celebrate our rich heritage!
