Local Gold and Silver Dealers in Columbus, GA

Like other similarly-sized cities in Georgia, Columbus is a consolidated city-county situated on the western border of the state of Georgia. The city is located on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, directly across from Phenix City, Alabama – approximately 100 miles southwest of Atlanta. Columbus has a population of 194,000 and the metropolitan area, which includes the nearby Alabama cities of Auburn and Opelika, consists of 500,000 residents.

Named after Christopher Columbus, the city was founded in 1828 as a settlement that was situated at the beginning of the navigable section of the Chattahoochee River that was near the last stretch of the Federal Road before entering into Alabama. The river allowed Columbus businesses to ship cotton and other commodities to the international cotton market through New Orleans and eventually to Liverpool, England.

Expansion and historic preservation began in the middle part of the 20th century and continues into the 21st. Augusta was home to the 1996 Olympic softball competition and the National Infantry Museum was built as an attraction just outside the main gate of Fort Benning, a major power projection platform equipped to deploy combat-ready forces by air, rail, and highway.
