I hope you and your families are safe and well.  This has obviously been and is going to continue to be for a while an interesting moment in our history as a world, as a community, and as an organization.  Please know the work you care so much about will continue.  


There are great preservation projects happening right now.  If you feel like getting out of the house, please drive by HCF’s current projects.  They are included in our latest newsletter.  


The offices of Historic Columbus are closed for now, but your staff is working in and out of the office and is available to you.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email us.

Stay tuned for events to come in 2021...


Founded in June 1966, the Historic Columbus Foundation (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; Historic Chattahoochee Commission; Uptown Columbus, Incorporated; Board of Historic and Architectural Review; "Ma" Rainey House board; Historic Linwood Foundation; Port Columbus; Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce; Columbus Archives and History Center; and Columbus Housing Initiative. HCF is a local partner in a coalition with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation.


Our mission goes above and beyond revitalizing Columbus...


Historic Columbus' goals are near and long term...


From 1969 Historic Columbus has made great strides...

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.
