In 1886, the land found just northwest of Belleville, Illinois was occupied primarily by farmers and traders. The area was filled with underground coal mines, foundries, brickyards and grain drills. When the town of Belleville attempted to annex the land and its farms and businesses, the independent residents quickly petitioned for the organization of their own village. The petition circulated through the territory and in December 1886 the village of New Swansea was born.
The village of Columbia, Illinois is located in St. Clair County seventeen miles east of St. Louis, Missouri. In 1898 a three hundred dollar purchase was made for the property at the corner of Brackett and Illinois streets. This became the location for the Village Hall.
