With a population under a thousand, the small town of Columbia is in Coos County, New Hampshire. Originally chartered as Preston in 1762, its first settlers failed to meet the requirements of the grant so the plantation was transferred in 1770, after which it was renamed Cockburn Town and incorporated in 1797. In 1811, its name was changed to Columbia. US Route 3 provides access to the town. Columbia is southwest of Colebrook, west of Dixville Notch, and north-northeast of North Stratford. The Wallace Farm, which is also known as Pioneer Farm, is a historic farm in Columbia, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
