Saturday Roll | Civil War Sites

February 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Explore Columbia’s Civil War Sites with Historic Columbia on Saturday, Feb. 16 during our Weekend Strolls and Rolls program presented by Seed Architecture.

Columbia’s antebellum and Reconstruction era structures—including churches, hospitals, armories, governmental buildings and private homes—offer testimony to this tumultuous chapter in our nation’s history. Learn about Columbia during the early years of the war and about the fateful night of February 17, 1865 when 30 percent of the city’s structures were lost to fire. Step-off at the State House and count the iron stars marking where Union cannonballs hit the building.

The tour will meet at the Robert Mills Carriage House located at 1616 Blanding Street. Space is limited.
