ABOUT HISTORIC COLUMBUS
Founded in June 1966, Historic Columbus (HCF) is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization. Its mission is to promote historic preservation, heritage education, and heritage tourism in Columbus, the seat of Muscogee County. HCF has an active board of directors and an advisory board of trustees, a growing membership of more than 1,500, and a full-time professional staff. It is an advocate for preservation through representation on numerous boards, such as the city's Uptown Facade Board; Uptown Columbus, Inc.; Board of Historic and Architectural Review; Friends of "Ma" Rainey House; Historic Linwood Foundation; Port Columbus; Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce; and Midtown, Inc.. HCF is a local partner in a coalition with
the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.
Over $450,000 was invested in preservation projects, preservation grants, façade loans, education programming, and museum projects last year thanks to the support of Historic Columbus members.
