Old Columbus Cemetery


We visited Suwanee River State Park on our last RV trip, and hiked to the Old Columbus Cemetery where Karl took these photographs. As river transportation of goods gave way to rail, and rail to trucks, towns situated along the rivers and rails adapted, or went away. Old Columbus once served a population of 500 people. Located along the Suwanee River, it thrived in the mid-1800s, with a stage stop, rail stop, and of course steamboat stop.

Now, the cemetery and the old earthworks remain.
