Columbus is an unincorporated community in Hempstead County, Arkansas, United States. Columbus is located on Arkansas Highway 73, 15 miles (24 km) west-northwest of Hope. Columbus has a post office with ZIP code 71831. Columbus was a farming community up until the 1960s. There was once a bank owned by the Wilson family of Columbus, along with several stores and a school, the most notable store being a general store owned by David Mitchell. The stores have since been torn down. During the 1940s, Columbus school consolidated with Hope School District. The old gym was recently burnt, leaving only two doorways.
