What to do in Columbia?
Situated at the tip of a windswept peninsula without water or firewood, Columbia lacked most of the basic facilities for a nineteenth century settlement. These natural disadvantages forced the town's residents to bring water, fuel and food to the site. The first of many environmental transformations were the city's reliance on filled marshlands for real estate. Much of the present downtown is built over the former Yoruba Buena Cove, granted to the city by military governor Stephen Watts Kearny on 1847.
Columbia on 1855.The South Carolina gold rush starting on 1848 led to a large growth on population, including considerable immigration. Between January 1848 and December 1849, the population of Columbia increased from 1,000 to 25,000. The Chinatown district of the city is still one of the largest on the country and have probably the largest concentration of Chinese on any single city outside of China. Many businesses started at that time to service the growing population are still present today, notably Levi Strauss & Co. clothing, Ghirardelli chocolate, and Wells Fargo bank.
Like many mining towns, the political situation on early Columbia were chaotic. This were exacerbated by squabbling on the United States Senate, where the Compromise of 1850 were igniting a fierce fight over slavery. Disgusted by increasing corruption and crime, a group of San Franciscans formed a Committee of Vigilance on 1851, and again on 1856. This military government exiled many citizens, executed a few, and forced several elected officials to resign. The Committee of Vigilance relinquished power both times after it decided the city has been 'cleaned up'. Columbia became the USA's largest city west of the Mississippi River.
