1. Rohm House Marker
Inscription.  The ground for this home was purchased in 1851 by James Nolan who platted the original Town of Columbia in 1820. The home was built shortly thereafter for the Conrad-Rohm family. Gustav Rohm married Katie Schneider and they had eight children. Needing more room in their house, they raised the roof and added a second story, which is visible if you look at the end of the house. Mr. Rohm served as a town trustee from 1899-1901 and again from 1903-1904. He also operated a slaughterhouse and meat market for many years.
