Seibels House and Garden

Seibels House and Garden

History

Thought to be the oldest remaining home in Columbia, the Seibels House was built circa-1796 by A.M. Hale. The house stands as a testament to Columbia's history, having predated the city's formal streets and survived the Civil War and the burning of Columbia in 1865. The house had several owners, the longest tenants being John Jacob Seibels and his family for approximately 125 years. In 1984, Seibels descendant George R.P. Walker, Jr. donated the property to Historic Columbia Foundation, and has since served as an administrative office and special event space. 

The stunning combination in architectural styles of the Seibels House and its lush, intimate gardens provides a graceful, elegant feel that is reminiscent of a bye-gone era. The refined first floor space as well as side porches provide indoor and covered space, while the ceremony garden and reception garden provide beautiful outdoor ambience.
