Columbia Street Landing. Birthplace of Covington. An active harbor where schooners and steamers once docked. Established in the early 1800's, providing a vital link to other river cities transporting cotton, lumber, bricks, whiskey and mail. Oyster luggers brought fresh oysters regularly through the late 1930's. Many early settlers of the community arrived at this destination.
