Columbus (Images of America)

David M. Owings

Columbus has been uniquely positioned to take advantage of booming industry and trade throughout its history. Established in 1828 on the fall line of the Chattahoochee River, where the Piedmont Plateau meets the Coastal Plain, Columbus owes much of its success to the river; yet, there is much more to the city and its identity. Images of America: Columbus uses vintage images to explore the city's past in an effort to capture "what progress has preserved." This photographic collection travels back through time to take an intimate look at how Columbus transformed from a frontier town into the redefined and revitalized city that it has become. These photographs capture businesses, churches, busy street corners, and other city landmarks, as well as more personal glimpses of individuals, families, and homes. By revisiting the heart of the city, readers are offered a chance to easily imagine Columbus's past as if it were still alive today.

Columbus, Georgia in Vintage Postcards (GA) (Postcard History Series)

Jr. Kenneth H. Thomas

Founded in 1828 as a planned city by the Georgia Legislature, Columbus prospered due to its location on the Chattahoochee River. Industry sprang up along the shores of the Chattahoochee and shaped Columbus's identity as one of Georgia's premier cities. Today a thriving metropolis, it is the Columbus of yesteryear that is illuminated within these pages. Early postcard views reflect the city from around 1905 to 1942, showcasing many of its businesses, neighborhoods, and parks. Included are places virtually unknown to citizens today--the Bell Tower, the City Market, North Highlands Park, and Wildwood Park--as well as those that were landmarks a century ago and landmarks still: the Iron Bank, the Springer Opera House, the Union Depot, the YMCA, and Fort Benning.

Through an overview narrative history of Columbus's early years, dozens of rare images, and an assemblage of over fifteen intriguing, candid, at times humorous visitor accounts, " Well Worth Stopping to See " provides a unique and insightful perspective on an influential and dynamic Southern town. Also included is a driving tour of historic sites that will enable readers to appreciate the town's robust antebellum architectural heritage and better understand the contours of life within the borders of the original city carved from the wilderness nearly two centuries ago.

Phenix City (Images of America)

John Lyles

Phenix City, Alabama, on the western bank of the Chattahoochee River across from Columbus, Georgia, was officially incorporated as Brownville in 1883. However, its history can be traced through Girard, Knights Station, Summerville, Fort Mitchell, the Creek Indian town of Coweta, and several other communities within Russell County. Phenix City has provided a setting for many of the important events in Alabama’s history from early Spanish explorers, to its rich Native American heritage, to its role in opening and settling the Southern frontier, to its adherence to King Cotton, to its rebirth after being regarded the “wickedest city in America.” Phenix City has undergone profound change and yet has retained its rural charm.

Lower Chattahoochee River (GA) (Images of America)

The Columbus Museum

The Chattahoochee River has dramatically shaped the heritage of the lower Chattahoochee Valley of east and southeast Alabama and west and southwest Georgia. As the region’s dominant geographic feature, the Chattahoochee has served residents of the area as an engine for commerce and as an important transportation route for centuries. It has also been a natural and recreational resource, as well as an inspiration for creativity. From the stream’s role as one of the South’s busiest trade routes to the dynamic array of water-powered industry it made possible, the river has been at the very center of the forces that have shaped the unique character of the area. A vital part of the community’s past, present, and future, it binds the Chattahoochee Valley together as a distinctive region. Through a variety of images, including historic photographs, postcards, and artwork, this book illustrates the importance of the Chattahoochee River to the region it has helped sustain.
