You are invited to Palladium's 4th Annual Tour, Columbia Craftsman!
This year's Palladium Tour will showcase houses embodying the early 20th-century architectural movement that rebelled against the excessive detailing of late Victorian period instead opting for the natural beauty, colors, and textures of building materials and construction in the Craftsman style. Guests will tour the interiors (and some exterior spaces) of six properties nestled within the Melrose Heights-Fairview-Oaklawn neighborhood, which celebrates its twentieth anniversary as a local architectural conservation district and its seventh year as a National Register of Historic Places district in 2023.
In between tour stops, participants will have the opportunity to peruse the offerings of Melrose's Art in the Yard festival during this self-paced walking tour. The tour will conclude with a block party on Hagood Avenue where participants will enjoy a taste of the neighborhood and the southern hospitality that defines much of our community.
Tickets are $35 for Palladium members, $40 for Historic Columbia members, and $50 for non-members. Join or renew your membership today to receive your discounted access to Columbia Craftsman! Ticket sales end online at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, April 14. Tickets will be available at the event for $50, card or check only, from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m., outside of Crave Artisan Market.
