Columbia Heights is a first-ring suburb of the Twin Cities, and a 1st rate community! This is an award-winning town, and homes for sale in Columbia Heights are no less than the best!
This area was originally settled by members of the Polish-American community. Its Polish roots still run deep, as evidenced by the strong connection to its sister city, Lomianki. During World War 2, a group of Allied flyers was tragically shot down during the Warsaw Uprising. One of the flyers who lost their lives was the brother of a Columbia Heights resident. Lomianki erected a monument to each of the American flyers who made the greatest sacrifice in the name of justice, which is why Lomianki holds such a dear place in the hearts of Columbia Heights residents. A favorite fun fact of Columbia Heights native is that Abraham Lincoln’s funeral car was kept here, and Thomas Lowry restored the vehicle and took it to shows all over the country.
