Columbia is a planned community in Howard County that sits roughly halfway between the cities of Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Established in 1967 by the developer James Rouse, who also oversaw the revitilization of Baltimore's Inner Harbor, Columbia today has nearly 100,000 thousand residents living in ten self-contained villages. Each village emulates a small town with its own schools, community center, recreation facilities, and extensive path systems.
Though not incorporated, the Columbia Association serves as a large-scale homeowners association and de facto government. Columbia is home to the outdoor concert venue Merriweather Post Pavilion.
