|Columbus MS is located on the Tombigbee River on the edge of the Tombigbee Prairie, also called the "Black Prairie" because of the fertile black soil. This area is one of Mississippi's two richest growing areas and was once one of the nation's great cotton belts. Now it is mostly pasture land. In the mid-1800s this land was farmed by locals who preferred to build their large, fancy homes in Columbus rather than out in the priarie. Many of these homes are on tour during our annual Spring Pilgrimage which runs from the last weekend in March for 2 weeks. Here are photos of some of the lovely homes.|
