Founded in 1807 Columbia was the first continuously inhabited settlement in Lorain County.
Harmon, Levi and Azor Bronson, Calvin Hoadley,
Jared Pritchard and others formed the Waterbury
Land Company to buy the township from the
Connecticut Land Company. In 1808, Sally
Bronson named the township and became its first
teacher. In 1809, the first church society was
formed and Hoadley built a log gristmill beside
the Rocky River. A militia company was organized in 1810 and a two story blockhouse
was constructed for protection during the
War of 1812.
