Cottontown is surrounded by Bull Street, Elmwood Avenue, Main Street, and Grace Avenue, and has 395 total residences. Founded in the 1890s, this neighborhood is considered part of the "Bellevue Historic District," which was one of the first suburban communities to be annexed into Columbia in 1913. In 1997, Cottontown became part of the National Register of Historic Places and is now classified as an architectural conservation district, meaning it is protected by the City of Columbia.
Cottontown is a special neighborhood because its historical appearance is still intact. Most residences in Cottontown were built between 1925 and 1940, and though there is a variety of early twentieth-century architecture amongst the houses in the neighborhood, the most common house type is the craftsman bungalow. In walking down the largely unchanged streetscapes of this beautiful neighborhood, make sure to admire the historical architectural integrity these homes have retained, as well as the hardwood tree branches that canopy the streets overhead.
This neighborhood is located in Richland County under the 29201 zip code and is zoned for the Richland One school district: Logan Elementary School, St. Andrews Middle School, and Columbia High School.
