Columbiana Attractions

"There is always something happening in Columbiana!" is the famous quote by Mayor Stancil Handley.  Rich in history, Columbiana is the home to Shelby County Historical Society Museum and archives, housed in the 1854 Shelby County Courthouse.  The Karl C. Harrison Museum of George Washington is located in the Mildred B. Harrison Regional Library.

Park facilities include a City Park near Elvin Hill Elementary School and the Columbiana Sports Complex on McDow Road.  City Park features a pavilion, picnic tables, playground and swing sets.  Adjacent are Lewis and Bolton Girls Softball Fields.  The sports complex features batting cages, a playground, four baseball fields, a football field and a walking track.

Many of our residents enjoy walking and jogging around town on our beautiful sidewalks.  Our attractive downtown streetscape is just one of the many amenaties that draws people to our City.
