Historic Columbia maintains a permanent collection of more than 6,500 historic artifacts. The collections span the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries and form the basis of interpretation at our historic house museums. Objects vary in composition, size, and value with major categories in the permanent collection including textiles, decorative arts, fine arts, tools, and historic images.
