Rolling on the River – Keystone Edge looks at Columbia

Columbia, Lancaster County, is a town nestled along the mighty Susquehanna River. Walk through downtown towards the water and you'll pass historic brick buildings, vintage storefronts and Victorian homes. You'll see thriving antique markets, a brewpub, a world-renowned museum and a stately market hall.

    2. I think the question has been raised many times throughout the years. I don't think they have the funding to paint and replace the doors.

  3. Too darn bad this fluff piece didn't point out the successes that Don and Becky Murphy have made at Hinkle's, 301 Locust, 401 Locust, 224 Locust and other properties. And Gorman Distributors and Black Olive Restaurant come to mind, too.

  4. What does Lee Stabert really know about this town? I guess that's how she is able to have it look so appealing, she doesn't know.

  5. some things NEVER change. That door at the National Bank Museum SHOULD have been fixed or protected with water seal 15 years ago. Why have they been allowed to get away with that all these years? And every day the downtown is looking better and better. Condemn it and give them 30 days to fix.
    Kudos to Don & Becky Murphy. Thank you for caring and doing something about it. We really do appreciate all the great and awesome things that you are doing. Thanks.
    Council...STOP THE OUTRAGEOUS SPENDING. NO $$$$$$$ TO STUDY MOVING THE OFFICES. The Codes personnel are supposed to be OUT ON THE STREETS...NOT SITTING IN THE OFFICE. IF THERE'S NOTHING TO DO OR ITS RAINING or snowing, STAY HOME.it's a slap in the face to have them come in for what 20-25 hrs a week-regardless. if this is the slow season they should only be working hours needed-like maybe 10. council get it together. DON'T PAY THEM TO SIT IN THE OFFICE. Such disrespect to all taxpaying homeowners who try to keep up, are doing the best they can or have extenuating cicumstances. i call BS
