Columbus is one of many pivotal points along the Texas Pioneer Trail covering Washington, Fayette, Colorado and Austin counties. The Columbus area is known as the Cradle of Texas where Stephen F. Austin's "Old Three Hundred" planted roots in the early 1820s.
Visiting historic and scenic sights, the trail crisscrosses an area extending north from Brenham and nearby Washington-on-the-Brazos south to Oakland, west to La Grange and east to San Felipe. For a free map and information, contact the Columbus Tourism Office in the historic Stafford Opera House.
