Homeschool Friday: Arsenal Hill

Open to all homeschool students

Named for the military academy established here in 1842, Arsenal Hill includes the Governor’s Mansion and grounds, the Matthew J. Perry Courthouse, Finlay Park, and a diverse residential history. As the highest point within the capitol city's downtown area, Arsenal Hill became a desirable residential neighborhood for white elites during the antebellum era and then for middle- and working-class African Americans during the later 19th and 20th centuries. This walking tour will explore the areas’ rich history including residential, industrial, commercial, religious, educational, and governmental sites. 

We plan to meet at the Arsenal Hill Community Center located at 1800 Lincoln St, Columbia, SC 29201.
