On behalf of the Columbus City Council and the City of Columbus, I am pleased to welcome you to our website. While this site will provide you with valuable city information, nothing compares to the real life experience of visiting and living in our fine city.
Located at the cross-roads of I-10 and SH-71, we are easy driving distance from Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and the gulf coast. This makes Columbus an ideal location for business and we have an active economic development organization to work with industry interested in locating to our area.
Columbus is proud to offer a quality school system with a strong athletic tradition. Our medical staff, hospital, and clinics are first class and I will put our live oak trees up against any town.
As proud as I am about Columbus’ rich history, our best days are ahead. I invite you to be part of the new exciting history.
Welcome to Columbus!
Mayor Dwain K. Dungen
