Presented by: Susquehanna National Heritage Area

Location: Columbia Crossing River Trails Center – Susquehanna National Heritage Area


Uncover Columbia's many stories in our new exhibit, 'Columbia's Storied Places' at Columbia Crossing River Trails Center. Historic photographs, postcards, and newspaper clippings make up a scrap book of our town.

Each generation of Columbia residents has transformed the town to meet their own needs. Thousands of Columbians have left their marks, large and small. Susquehanna National Heritage Area's new exhibit at Columbia Crossing, created with the support of the Columbia Historic Preservation Society and Lancaster History, is a celebration of Columbia's "storied places." We explore how the borough's iconic locations, from the industrial riverfront to the ornate but ill-fated opera house, evolved and changed over Columbia's long history.

This exhibit will be on display through May 30, 2022.

Columbia Crossing is owned by the Borough of Columbia and is managed by Susquehanna National Heritage Area (SNHA). SNHA works to showcase the river’s natural, recreation, and history stories to make this region a national destination for outdoor fun and cultural discovery. Visitor hours of the center are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 12 noon-4 p.m. Sundays through Memorial Day.
