Special note: The origin of the name "Columbus", as quoted from Thomas Wadley Raoul in "The Family of Raoul" - "I remember when Father and I were staking out Columbus Cottage, and he was wondering if he could afford to build it, the mail was brought to him, and in it was a check for $1,400.00, a dividend from the Columbus (GA) Iron Works, just about the estimated cost of the cottage. Hence the name."
