Lunch & Learn
Feed your mind during lunch at our Lunch and Learn series where we will explore little known topics and view artifacts not often seen on display. This series features historians from near and far with lectures on unique historical topics as well as their own research methods.
This series is a visual road map that merges images with accounts of people, sites and events pulled from historical newspapers, diaries and ephemera. Building upon the efforts of previous generations, this account explores South Carolina’s capital city from its early years through the mid-20th century in ways previously underdeveloped or altogether unrepresented.
