On this day in history...
April 5, 1933—the day President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the Civilian Conservation Corps as part of the New Deal. The Great Depression and the New Deal changed much about life in Columbia and South Carolina, including creating sixteen state parks. Join us to learn about how the Great Depression altered the state.
Homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of each month. Each month’s program is from 10 - 11:30 a.m. and includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia. Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels. This program is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10 students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to explore that month's topic.
This month's program will meet at Seibels House, located at 1601 Richland Street. Plenty of street parking will be available.
