State Senator John Lewis Gervais of the town of Ninety Six introduced a bill that was approved by the legislature on March 22, 1786, to create a new state capital.
Three main issues occupied most of their time: public drunkenness, gambling, and poor sanitation.
The site was chosen as the new state capital in 1786, due to its central location in the state. After remaining under the direct government of the legislature for the first two decades of its existence, Columbia was incorporated as a village in 1805 and then as a city in 1854.
Columbia received a large stimulus to development when it was connected in a direct water route to Charleston by the Santee Canal.
As one of the first planned cities in the United States, Columbia began to grow rapidly.
Its population was nearing 1,000 shortly after the start of the 19th century.
