Long Description:
RICHARDSON STREET
Columbia's chief business street, Main, was first named Richardson Street, for Richard Richardson (1704-1780). This Virginia native settled in present Clarendon County; served in the "Snow Campaign" of 1775; was commissioned Brigadier General in 1778; was a member of the Commons House of Assembly, the First and Second Provincial Congresses, and the First General Assembly. Six S.C. Governors are among his descendants.

THE NORTH-SOUTH STREETS IN THE CITY OF COLUMBIA
The north-south streets, laid out in the two mile square of the original city of Columbia in 1786, were named (except for Assembly) for generals and officers who fought in the American Revelution. Most of them were native Americans, but one was the Polish Count Pulaski.ERECTED BY COLUMBIA COMMITTEE, NATIONAL SOCIETY COLONIAL DAMES OF AMERICA IN THE STATE OF S.C.
