Creating Columbia Maryland

Columbia Archives • January 2015

Women's Gym & Package Plan Plus

A Mini-Course
You're invited to our free mini-course series of "Creating Columbia" offered by Columbia Archives, presented by Columbia historian Barbara Kellner this coming February at Slayton House.

It was big news when the plan for Columbia was presented 50 years ago. The period that led up to it had included a year of hard work, but what followed was an even more hectic schedule. “Creating Columbia: A Mini-Course” looks at the period from November 1964 to May 1965, covering the formal Columbia plan, the initial reaction to it and the feverish work that followed in order to fine tune the plan, cement relationships within Howard County and ensure that the plan would be accepted and then greenlighted for development.
