A small, community-oriented town where everyone knows everyone.
Small-town charm and historic character, but at a slower pace than other similar communities.
New subdivisions are being developed to offer options beyond the standard ranch or family farm.
Columbia, affectionately known as Mule Town, is a picturesque, classically southern small town located in Maury County, Tennessee, about 45 minutes south of Nashville. Proud of its status as "Mule Capital of the World", the town's historic industry can be seen in business names, stuck to nearly every car's windshield, and in their many annual events. The town is teeming with activity and the locals are proud to show it off.
Rolling farms and spacious neighborhoods make up the majority of Columbia, but newer townhomes and subdivisions are being developed to cater to the young singles and families that are looking to escape the city.
Columbia is full of charm and unique character that you won't find anywhere else. With one loop around the town square, visitors and locals alike can easily spend hours enjoying unique restaurants and shops, and it plays host to several favorite annual and monthly events. Riverwalk Park is great for a stroll and the community recreation centers offer plenty of activity. Columbia is just far enough outside of its neighboring cities to remain peaceful and seemingly untouched, but close enough to still take advantage of the activity and conveniences that they have to offer.
