Columbus Georgia corporate?
The city would have dried up in the early 60's if not for the Fort Benning and the Vietnam War when massive amounts of recruits trained at Sand Hill etc made many a shyster wealthy on Victory Drive.
When the mills closed so went the last of the decent paying blue collar jobs unfortunately.

You have got to be kidding, right? In the 60's the mills were king in this city and the city and those who ran them, made sure of that. They operated this city with an iron fist, making sure no union jobs got close to this town. Afraid the wages would go up and they would not be able to compete, they were a notorious bunch, which eventually died off. The mills were some of the lowest paying jobs in Columbus and throughout the South. A strange thing happened when they ceased to exist here in Columbus, the average wage and benefits went up, not down. Also, the education levels went up and the drop out rate went down, because none of the better companies were hiring 16 year old kids out of high school and promising them a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. You've been around for a while, but man have you gotten stuck in some sort of time warp? U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E. The lady stated how much she appreciates Columbus and some of you think that is odd. The Maconite got his feelings hurt and the Columbusite got his feelings hurt. Columbus isn't for everyone, but she likes it. Macon isn't for everyone but some one likes, they have 93,000 people living there, those who don't like it have moved on just like she did. Those who do not like Columbus usually move on.

I am back to the forum I no this is going to be a old post about the people that moved here and said they liked columbus and said that columbus is spread out well that is true your right columbus is spread out columbus is really a nice city to live in and people on here put it down for no reason and I dont understand why they put columbus down because theres nothing wrong with columbus. So this is to the people who say columbus is small im sorry folks but columbus is not small columbus may seem small because of the small downtown in columbus but columbus is really a nice size city columbus is spread out all over the place like atlanta is and like augusta georgia is. The only difference in columbus is that columbus is not as large as atlanta and augusta but columbus is a metro area though but a small metro area with a population of almost 200,000 people in the columbus metro area.

oh and another thing about the downtown area of columbus I believe its fixing to change in a few years to with all the people thats going to be moving to columbus for the brac and with all the students in the columbus state unversity campus downtown in columbus I beleive downtown columbus may start to see some highrise condos and high hotels start to pop up in downtown columbus to by no mean im not saying they will be 20 to 25 storys no no no no they want be that tall. My best guess is they will be from 10 storys to 14 storys high.

It is so nice, the downtown area seems to be ok too. The only thing I miss in Macon is the interstate access, but I didn't realize the potential of Columbus.

We really love it here in Columbus b/c it seems as the perfect place to raise a family!!!
We are moving from the N Highlands area of Macon to North Columbus. We have lived in Macon for 11 years and will miss it. I have traveled to Columbus on business twice a week for over four years and have always enjoyed it. I am a business rep who services SW GA (not Macon) so I've wanted to make this move for a couple of years now. We love Macon but will learn to love Columbus. Yes it does "appear" to look larger and busier than Macon...........just an observation.

I read that the Georgia Music & Sports Hall of Fame museums are in trouble and might be closing the doors. Otis Redding is rolling in his grave. R.I.P.

This is true. The city is looking for money to keep them.
