This searchable collection of Columbia City Directories from 1859 is an invaluable source for historians and genealogists. City directories offer an alphabetized listing of residents and businesses as well as a street-by-street listing of occupants.

This South Carolina Digital Library project was made possible through a collaboration between the Richland County Public Library and University of South Carolina Libraries. Thanks to Margaret Dunlap at RCPL and Tabitha Samuel (MLIS 2012) for their work with coordinating the scanning, metadata creation, and loading of the directories into the database.
