Columbia is a town in Houston County, Alabama, United States. It is part of the Dothan, Alabama Metropolitan Statistical Area. At the 2000 census the population was 804.HistoryFounded in 1820, Columbia served as a major trading center for communities throughout the Wiregrass Region of Alabama between 1822-1833. Bordering the State of Georgia and the Chattahoochee River, Columbia was a major port-of-call for steamboats and was known to many as "Old Columbia". The town was incorporated in 1880 and was the center of education, culture, commerce, and trade. It was the county seat of Henry County which then comprised portions of present day Covington, Dale, Barbour, Coffee, Crenshaw, Bullock, Geneva, and Houston counties. Columbia was the largest town in the area during the 19th century and remains one of the area's oldest continuously operating municipalities.
