All roads lead to Kings Contrivance, but few go through this village in Columbia. And for resident Vic Baffa, that's one of the things that makes the area special. At the southeastern edge of Columbia, Kings Contrivance is easily accessed by U.S. 29 and Route 32 as well as Interstate 95. But once off the highways, it's a different story. "Most of the roads are not through roads," Baffa said. "You drive into a neighborhood and eventually you have to turn around at a dead end. It tends to slow people down."
