Due to the city's location near Fort Benning, a major Army installation, Columbus residents enjoy a diverse blend of cultural influences.

This dedication to creating a better community is key to attracting new families on the hunt for apartments for rent in Columbus.


Columbus was the home of Dr. John Stith Pemberton, the pharmacist who invented the secret recipe for Coca-Cola. He's buried in Linwood Cemetery. Mr. Claud A. Hatcher created the recipe for RC Cola, a southern favorite, in 1905 for his family grocery store in Columbus, GA.
