Entrepreneurs and professionals, artists and artisans work in historic buildings erected at the city's founding in 1923-1929. The city's founder, Robert A. Long, engaged the services of architects and planners from his company headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri to design the city's structure. The area which was formerly marshy and subject to frequent flooding, was filled in, graded, and platted and streets were paved using the most advanced techniques of the day. Several buildings, including the high school, the public library, the Community Church, the Monticello Hotel and the YMCA were built by R. A. Long and donated to the City. The city was designed to accomodate 50,000 inhabitants, however the Great Depression put a halt to its rapid expansion and even today, its population is around 35,000.

High speed Internet is available widely and there's a wide selection of available commercial and residential space within walking distance to Lower Columbia Community College, the library, park.
