The Lincoln Home, located in the Columbus Historic District, sits two blocks south of Main Street and just west of the Mississippi University for Women campus. It is in easy walking distance of the school, churches, restaurants, gift and antique shops and the Trotter Convention Center.
Backstrom's Country Bed & Breakfast is a unique brick and wood home, located in a quiet setting only minutes from town on highway 182 east. The home is constructed of lumber from a century-old Tennessee country store owned by Mrs. Backstrom's family. The balcony in the vaulted great room is a gallery of original art and sculpture.
Welcome to the Cartney-Hunt House. This Federal-style house was built in 1828 only seven years after Columbus was incorporated in 1821. The builder of the house, Mr. James M. Cartney, acquired the tract of land that the house is located on April 10, 1824. Mr. Cartney conveyed the property to Henry W. Hunt sometime before June 20, 1836.
