Columbia University
Columbia was one of the first colleges formed in Colonial America. King George II founded it as King’s College in 1754. The college originally stood on the site of New York’s current city hall. After the Revolutionary War, the college was renamed Columbia College. Over the years, Columbia added many schools, including a medical school, law school, and school for architecture. In 1896, Columbia became a university. The University moved to its present-day site in upper Manhattan in 1897. Today, it’s considered a leading university in the liberal arts and professional studies.

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
