History

West Columbia was incorporated in 1894 as Brookland, but the United States Postal Service called the town "New Brookland" since there was another town called Brookland. In 1936, the name was changed to West Columbia to emphasize its proximity to Columbia, South Carolina. Numerous businesses, churches and a high school retain the Brookland and New Brookland names. Columbia Metropolitan Airport, which serves Columbia, is located in this city. The airport is the location of a National Weather Service radar station and Weather Forecast Office, which serves eighteen counties in South Carolina and five counties in Georgia. West Columbia lies to the south and west of the Saluda and Congaree Rivers. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 6. 3 square miles (16. 3 km²), of which, 6. 1 square miles (15. 7 km²) of it is land and 0. 2 square miles (0. 5 km²) of it (3. 18%) is water.
