From there, we wondered how many states had a Columbia? And this is what we’ve been able to find given the time available. NOTE: For consistency, we’ve linked the state’s Columbia to WikipediA for each of the below listed towns, cities and unincorporated entities.
Arizona: Apparently a ghost town.
Delaware: Columbia is a populated place located in Sussex County.
Iowa: Columbia is an unincorporated community in Marion County, Iowa.
New Jersey: Estimated population – 229.
South Carolina: Estimated population – 131,686. The capital city of SC.
South Dakota: Estimated population – 136.
Tennessee: Estimated population – 34,402. The “mule capital of the world.”
Virginia: Estimated population – 49. The smallest incorporated town in Virginia.
