The Columbia City Historic District is a nationally recognized historic district located in the Columbia City neighborhood of the Rainier Valley. According HistoryLink.org, there are 14 historic sites in Columbia City. Over the past few decades, the region has undergone enormous changes due to development and gentrification.
Community amenities in the area include lush Columbia Park, Bob’s Quality Meats along Rainier Avenue, and Ark Lodge Cinemas. Today, these pillars join several restaurants, cafes, and consignment shops ready to welcome anyone who visits Seattle’s Southside neighborhood.
