Closings at Historic Columbia

HC Staircase

In accordance with Governor McMaster’s stay-at-home ordinance as a response to the outbreak of COVID-19, Historic Columbia has closed its historic house museums, including Robert Mills House, Hampton-Preston Mansion, the Museum of Reconstruction at Woodrow Wilson Family Home, and the Mann-Simons Site. 

Until the stay-at-home ordinance is lifted, the following applies: 

  • The house museums and gardens are not open to visitors or researchers 
  • Any scheduled school and group visits are cancelled  
  • All Historic Columbia events are cancelled or postponed  
  • All events renting a Historic Columbia property must be cancelled or postponed. We encourage all events scheduled through June 2020 to consider rescheduling for a later date. 
  • Historic Columbia’s offices are closed and employees are working remotely, unless essential personnel are needed for onsite work.

Stay safe and healthy!
