Churches of Columbia, PA
Columbia, PA is known for its historic architecture. Located along the Susquehanna River, it became a canal shipping center in the 1840s. Later in the 1800s, Columbia was a thriving railroad town. The wealth that was created in Columbia led to the building of many significant historic homes, a large number of which still exist.
This architectural exuberance was reflected as well in the churches of Columbia. Below is a mural on the Holy Trinity Parish Center.
