Correct spelling, explanation: the correct spelling for this word is column from Latin columna. Probably the mistake
coloumn is connected with the spelling of another word colour, however ou spelling only applies to the -our ending, so not for column.

noun, in architecture a pillar to support or for decoration; a formation (in a row)
Columns in this palace are from the 13th century.
