The 1786 Society


Columbia County was founded in 1786. Though much has changed since then, the county remains a scenic rural area with extensive natural resources, abundant wildlife, and a thriving agricultural economy. The Columbia Land Conservancy is working hard in many ways to ensure that these qualities will last long into the future.
