The City of Columbia (Population: 34,681, Source: 2010 Census) is located approximately 45 miles south of Nashville in the heart of Maury County. Our city offers something for everyone, whether your interest is historical homes, sports, antiques, shopping, or mules. Did someone say mules?
That's right! A week in April is devoted entirely to the four-legged animal that played such an instrumental role in the settlement of our community. The annual Mule Day Parade attracts over one hundred thousand spectators from throughout the United States and abroad.
