A guided tour of the University Hill neighborhood.
Established between 1885 and 1950, the University Hill neighborhood features homes with a mix of architectural styles and designs from prominent regional and local architects. As one of the oldest residential communities in Columbia, this neighborhood has continued to be shaped and defined by urban renewal and the University of South Carolina’s eastward expansion. Bounded by Sumter Street, Gervais Street, Laurens Street, and Blossom Street, this portion of South Carolina’s capital city was listed as a Historic District in the National Register of Historic Places in 2004 and is protected as an architectural conservation district by the City of Columbia.
Second Sunday Strolls provide a guided tour for many of the neighborhoods featured in Historic Columbia’s Retrace: Connecting Communities Through History brochures.
The tour will meet at The Graduate, located at 1619 Pendleton St. The tour is 90-minutes in length. Reservations are encouraged but walk-ins are welcome as space allows!
