Designed by Galveston architect Nicholas Clayton, the Opera House is host to a small museum, monthly dinner theatre, exhibits, weddings and galas. Ask about our Talking Houses program, a self-guided audio tour designed to enhance your visit to our historic sites with the assistance of your car radio. Then, begin your walking tour. While downtown, visit the Live Oak Art Center, discretely tucked inside a 19th century-era saloon known as the Brunson Building. Also downtown are the Confederate Memorial Museum, which is housed in an old water tower that resembles a castle turret and the Colorado County Courthouse, which features a stunning stained glass dome in the second floor district courtroom.

Welcome,

On behalf of the Columbus City Council and the City of Columbus, I am pleased to welcome you to the area. While this guide will provide you with valuable city information, nothing compares to the real life experience of visiting and living in our fine city. Located at the crossroads of Interstate 10 and State Highway 71, we are easy driving distance from Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and the gulf coast. This makes Columbus an ideal location for business and we have an active economic development organization to work with industry interested in locating to our area. Columbus is proud to offer a quality school system with a strong athletic tradition. Our medical Mayor Dwain Dungen staff, hospital, and clinics are first class and I will put our live oak trees up against any town. As proud as I am about Columbus’ rich history, our best days are ahead. I invite you to be part of the new exciting history.

Welcome to Columbus! Dwain K. Dungen Mayor
