So, you love history? You've made it to the right place.
Join us as we explore Columbia and Richland County's intriguing past- through its houses, its gardens, along its streets and through the people that shaped who we are today.
Tour our four historic house museums, all located in Columbia's downtown historic district. Tours are offered Tuesday - Sunday and take about 60 minutes per tour.
We recognize that 19th-century architecture poses some accessibility challenges and are always working to improve access to our homes for all our visitors. If you or your group have any accessibility concerns, please call 24 hours in advance of your tour so that we may best accommodate your needs. There is a small step to gain access to the Gift Shop where admission must be purchased. With 24-hour advance notice, we can place a ramp at the entrance to allow wheelchair access. Please contact 803.252.1770 ext. 24 for more information about accessibility at any of Historic Columbia's properties. Weekend visitors should contact Historic Columbia during regular weekday business hours to plan for an upcoming visit.
