PDS PP IMG West Gervais Page PhotoThe West Gervais Street District is an area of Columbia containing commercial and industrial buildings from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s, many of which relied on, and were sometimes shaped by, the multiple railroad lines nearby. The district is reflective of Columbia's importance as a manufacturing and transportation center for the state. It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1983 and was designated a local Historic Commercial District in 1994.
