The Columbus Commercial Historic District is significant for its association with the commercial development of the city of Columbus and Platte County. Established in 1856 along a well-known trail route, Columbus' history is entrenched in its position as a regional trade center along the Platte River in east-central Nebraska. It is also significant for its grouping of buildings representing an array of architectural styles and forms indicative of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Significant expansion and construction in the historic district took place between the years of 1910 and 1919.
