Rent a Venue

Let your special event become a memorable historic occasion at one of our four available historic homes and/or gardens! The timeless elegance and charm of some of the oldest properties in Columbia provide an idyllic and lush old-world escape right in the heart of downtown Columbia's Robert Mills Historic District.

The Seibels House and Gardens, the Robert Mills Carriage House and Gardens, the Gardens of the Hampton-Preston Mansion, and the Gardens of the Woodrow Wilson Family Home are four unique event venue spaces operated by Historic Columbia. Each house was built at least before the turn of the century, with some being much older, so each has its own specific style and amenities. Please view our individual venue pages for a closer look at each venue.

To rent any of our properties, or for more information, please contact our rental department at or 803.252.7742 x 11.

Attention Greek organizations: please contact our rental coordinator for specific rates and regulations.
