Columbia Restaurant Sign

Detailed view of the restaurant sign. The restaurant was started by Casmiro Hernandez, Sr. who named the restaurant after the explorer Christopher Columbus and the song, "Columbia the Gem of the Ocean." He even incorporated the song title into his restaurant's motto, "Columbia the Gem of Spanish Restaurants." His experience of the freedoms allotted in the United States drew him to the song, which skillfully captures the feelings of being free. The lyrics to "Columbia the Gem of the Ocean" are included below.
