Columbia County

History

In the Piedmont Region of Georgia, Columbia County was formed in 1790 from Richmond County. Its county seat, Appling, is just north of I-20 about 140 miles east of Atlanta and 20 miles west of Augusta. Columbia is bordered by the Georgia counties of Lincoln, Wilkes, McDuffie and Richmond, and the South Carolina county of Edgefield and McCormick.
