Kings Contrivance



Kings Contrivance is third largest of the 10 villages in the planned
community of Columbia, and is home to about 11,000 residents. It
contains a Village Center, apartment complexes and housing
developments. Kings Contrivance is located on historic land originally
granted by one of the Lords Baltimore in 1730. The streets take their
names from “The Folk Songs of North America,” compiled by Alan
Lomax. The street names in Huntington are taken from the works
of Carl Sandburg. Dickinson is the first neighborhood in Columbia
named for a woman, American poet Emily Dickinson. Amherst House,
the Community Center located in Dickinson, was named for Amherst,
Mass., the home of Emily Dickinson.
