HistoryEdit

Columbiana was laid out by Joshua Dixon in 1805.[6] The city takes its name from Columbiana County, which itself is a portmanteau of Christopher Columbus and Queen Anne. [7] Columbiana was incorporated as a village in 1837.[8] When founded, the village had a central location in Columbiana County; however, the formation of Mahoning County in 1846 caused it to run the border between the two new counties. The village officially became a city in 2000.
