Historic Columbia provides many programs for educators and life-long learners. Choose from a variety of programs to learn about new resources to use in your classroom, learn practical skills including research, historic preservation and gardening. Adult education programs are designed for both newcomers and those who have worked with these topics for years.
Each summer, Historic Columbia partners with local organizations to host a two-day workshop for teachers to help develop curriculum content and showcase new resources to use in the classroom. Continuing education credit is available to South Carolina teachers.
We offer a series of workshops dedicated to teaching preservation techniques to owners of historic properties or simply lovers of all things old.
Join us for hands-on approaches to caring for plants in your garden. Garden workshops help you prepare for different growing seasons and considerations with different plant varieties. These tools and tips will ensure your garden is both vibrant and sustainable!
Learn more about Historic Columbia’s research initiatives at the monthly Research Roundtable programs. Staff will share their latest discoveries and lingering questions as they uncover the history of our community. Participants are welcome to bring their lunch to this program.
