A planned community in Howard County, Columbia was incorporated in 1963 by the Rouse Company. Developer James Rouse believed that a city could be a positive force in the lives of its residents, and through controlled development he aimed to grow Columbia into a healthy, productive community. He succeeded. The town is now one of the most populous places in the state, and locals love living there. Columbia is divided into ten smaller villages, each featuring a mix of single-family homes, apartments, condos and townhouses.
