Mann-Simons Site and Modjeska Monteith Simkins House
In celebration of Black History Month, Historic Columbia is offering a combined tour of both the Mann-Simons Site and the Modjeska Monteith Simkins House. This tour lasts approximately 75 minutes and will meet at the Gift Shop at Robert Mills, where tickets can be purchased. Guests should drive from there to the Mann-Simons site. After a semi-guided tour of the home, guests may either walk or drive the two blocks to the Modjeska Monteith Simkins House. Here guests will take a self-guided tour and conclude the combined tour.
Black History Month Tour Map
The Mann-Simons Site, home to the same entrepreneurial African American family for nearly 130 years, traces the journey of Columbia’s African American community from enslavement through urban renewal.
Modjeska Monteith Simkins House
Built between 1890 and 1895, this one-story cottage was home to Modjeska Monteith Simkins, one of South Carolina's greatest human rights advocates, from 1932 until her death on April 5, 1992.
