Five Points Association

As an advocate for the district’s businesses, the Five Points Association strives to guide development and improvements that will enhance the vitality of Five Points.  The FPA also works diligently to promote Five Points to Columbia and beyond while cultivating inclusivity internally as a neighborhood.  Evident by over 100 years of history, viability and recognition as an iconic locale, the success of Five Points would not be possible without the reciprocating support between the neighboring businesses, support staff, partners and companionship of the City of Columbia and Richland County.

While fostering those relationships, supporting the businesses, and continuously showcasing Five Points and its treasures, the Five Points Association and its Board continue the beautification, collaboration and development efforts to empower growth, upholding the historic legacy of Columbia’s original village neighborhood. 

For over 100 years, Five Points has grown, evolved and been an icon in Columbia and beyond. And for almost 40 years the Five Points Association/Foundation has led remarkable endeavors and continues the legacy of priceless accomplishments.
