Columbia

Brief histories of the three river towns based on "Images of America" by Frederic Abendschein

Since early times, the Susquehanna River provided the perfect setting for developing civilizations. Digs held near the water’s edge have unearthed Native American artifacts that date back thousands of years. Tribes such as the Shawanese and Susquehannocks inhabited the area; numerous locations – including the Susquehanna River – still bear their tribal names. European influence arrived to the area in the 1720s when Robert

8

Barber, John Wright, and Samuel Blunston settled in Shawannah, the Indian town located here. With close ties to contemporaries such as William Penn and Benjamin Franklin, these founding families also brought culture and education to the area. The desire to cross the river spawned a lucrative business for John Wright - so much so that by 1730 the area was renamed Wright’s Ferry. This access to the western banks of the Susquehanna gave the town the


distinction of being known far and wide as the Gateway to the West. The settlement flourished, and by 1788 a land lottery was set up to establish the town of Columbia. This new name was in line with movements of the time to name locations in honor of Christopher Columbus. The name change was also motivated by a desire to make the area a more attractive choice for a city to serve as the new nation’s capital. Only a few votes made the difference in the choice of location for the capital after some back-room political maneuvering swayed key votes. Nevertheless, the area prospered. Transportation continued to play a key role in Columbia’s development. Canals along the shallow Susquehanna shoreline helped the area prosper as a trade center. Later, railroads would provide transportation for goods purchased in Columbia’s tanneries, foundries, and numerous mills. This busy hub moved more than goods; it moved escaped slaves to freedom. The town’s burgeoning free AfricanAmerican community worked quietly but effectively with the abolitionists, many guided by the founding

fathers’ Quaker ideals of peace and justice. Historians recently have found evidence pointing to Columbia as the birthplace of the term “Underground Railroad.” Millionaire Stephen Smith, a free black man who operated a lumber yard by the railroad tracks, was an outspoken opponent of slavery and a willing accomplice to those on the path to freedom. Columbia’s role in the Civil War era extended beyond its Underground Railroad activity. The actions of local citizens undermined the plans of Confederate troops; when Columbians burned the wooden covered bridge which spanned the Susquehanna River at that time, Confederate forces were forced to turn west on a path which led to Gettysburg and to a turning point in the Civil War. Columbia has continued to change with the times, diversifying its economy into tourism with such attractions as the world-renowned National Watch and Clock Museum and The Turkey Hill Experience. Culture still plays an important role here as seen in the numerous art galleries and antique shops. In 2014 the town was selected by The Smithsonian Magazine as one of the top 20 best small towns to visit.

Marietta Remarkable beauty and hospitality are in large supply just north of Columbia in the small river town of

Marietta lies along the Susquehanna River just north of Columbia, positioned for commerce and industry based on river usage. Marietta was once a rowdy, harddrinking, gritty center of the lumber and iron industries. The town began as an American Indian trade outpost in the early 1700s. By 1736, it was known as Anderson’s Ferry, named for James Anderson who operated a river-crossing site. Smaller settlements developed over the ensuing years, all clustered around Anderson’s Ferry. These communities consolidated with some outlying farmland to become the Borough of Marietta, named for the womenfolk of some of the founding families, which included many Marys and at least one Henrietta. In the early days, the lumber business was a key component of the town’s industry. Marietta was a processing

10

center of raw timber floated down the river every spring from forests in the central part of the state. When the Pennsylvania Canal was built along the river between 1825 and 1830, it attracted more trade and itinerants who either worked on the canal boats or plied the river on rafts. The town grew quickly, and the river trade attracted entrepreneurs who hoped to strike it rich shipping and storing goods such as coal and whiskey. The entrepreneurs who succeeded became Marietta’s patriarchs who guided and stimulated the town’s early cultural and economic development. Naturally, these individuals had some of the most remarkable


While lumber production accounted for the town’s early prosperity, it was the iron-smelting industry that carried the town’s economy from the late 19th century into the early 20th century. At one time as many as eight iron furnaces operated just east of the borough. Over time, the iron industry had trouble competing with emerging industries. Marietta’s business economy slowly ebbed. Ironically, it was that economic downturn that positioned Marietta to become the jewel that it is today. Homes were largely unchanged during that time period, leaving their historic character intact. More than half of Marietta is now designated a National Historic District. The town is a recognized center for restoration. Today, Marietta is known for its bed and breakfast inns, unique restaurants, and historic charm.

Just across the bridge from Columbia on the York side of the Susquehanna, there's plenty of interesting local history in

Wrightsville

Early settlers in America headed west, crossing the Susquehanna River at Wright’s Ferry (now Columbia). John Wright operated the east shore of the ferry, and John Wright Jr. directed the west shore operation for his father at what is now the foot of Hellam Street in Wrightsville. Settlements sprang up in areas both north and south of that operation. William Wright laid out the 101-lot town of Wrightsville to the north of present day Hellam Street, while Susanna Houston laid out the 273 lots that became known

12

as Westphalia and Wrightsville Extended to the south of Hellam Street. All were incorporated into Wrightsville Borough in 1834. The Susquehanna and Tidewater Canal opened in 1840 and ran 45 miles downstream to the Chesapeake Bay. Canal boats, pulled by mules on a special double-deck towpath section of the wooden covered bridge that spanned the Susquehanna River at that time, crossed over the river from the Pennsylvania Canal at Columbia to the Susquehanna and Tidewater


Canal’s start at Wrightsville. Traffic consisting of grain, iron, lumber, and coal barges peaked in 1870. General John Gordon’s brigade of Early’s Division of the invading Confederate army approached Wrightsville on Sunday, June 28, 1863. After a brief encounter, hastily assembled defending Union forces retreated across the bridge toward Columbia. The defenders attempted to destroy the bridge’s center section, but instead fire destroyed the whole bridge. The Confederates turned

back only to fight the Union army again a few days later at Gettysburg. Over the years, Wrightsville has been home to such diverse businesses as cigar manufacturing, quarries, limekilns, lumber mills, a silk miller, a flour and feed mill, hardware manufacturing, and inn-keeping. One of the oldest buildings in Wrightsville is the Wrightsville House, a restored tavern from 1800 that overlooks the Susquehanna River where the ferry crossed from Columbia.

July 9 Historic Marietta Criterium Bike Race

This four-corner, one-mile bike race in downtown Marietta will be featuring the best bike racers in the Mid-Atlantic region. Bring the family and have your kids race, too (ages 4 to 12; helmets required). Marietta is a spectator-friendly spot for a bike race because there are ample areas to watch the racers. People can watch the racers pass at one corner and then run a block up to the next corner in time to see the bikes go flying by again with a new person in the lead. During and after the high-speed fun of the bike races, participants and their guests, along with spectators, may enjoy some fun activities and vendors throughout town and along the riverfront.
