History:  

Columbia Heights was formed as a village on March 14, 1898 when it separated from the former Fridley Township. On July 21, 1921 the Charter of the City of Columbia Heights was adopted and the city was formed.

A Polish flag and white eagle are on the sign marking the border between Columbia Heights and Minneapolis, visible when entering Columbia Heights on Central Avenue, in celebration of the suburb's early roots as a Polish–American community. In 1991, Columbia Heights joined Sister Cities International and selected Łomianki, Poland as its Sister City. In 1944, a plane of Allied flyers was shot down during the Warsaw uprising, near Łomianki. The brother of a long time Columbia Heights resident was on that mission. In 1987, the people of Łomianki erected a monument in memory of the American flyers who lost their lives. Because of this personal connection Łomianki was selected as the Sister City.

Abraham Lincoln's funeral car was bought by Thomas Lowry who restored it and featured it at a number of exhibitions throughout the country. When not in use, it was stored in Columbia Heights but was destroyed by a fire on March 18, 1911.

In 2016, Columbia Heights was honored with the All-American City Award according to the National Civic League.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

COLUMBIA HEIGHTS, a suburb of Minneapolis in the south edge of the former Fridley Township, was platted and named by the late Thomas Lowry of that city and was incorporated in 1921. It began as a dairy farm owned by Al Davies, was a golf course in 1921, and then developed into a community of homes in 1947; it surrounds the present city of Hilltop.
