Columbia County Pennsylvania
Genealogy and History



Columbia County was created on March 22, 1813 from part of Northumberland County and named for Columbia, a poetic name that alludes to Christopher Columbus. Bloomsburg, the county seat since November 30, 1847, was incorporated as a town on March 4, 1870, and is the only incorporated town in the state. Its name comes from Bloom Township, which was named for Samuel Bloom, a commissioner of Northumberland County.
