Introduction
A neighborhood has a life. It is born, lives, and dies over a span of time. Columbus, Georgia, was incorporated in 1828. This is well-documented by John H. Martin in "Columbus, Geo., Part One-1827-1846." It is available here: Columbus, Geo..

Early maps document the spread of the town from the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
