Event Description

Join HCF for a guided walking tour of the Cottontown neighborhood at 2 pm on Sunday, May 12. Drawing its name from the cash crop that South Carolina extensively famed during the 19th and early 20th centuries,Cottontown is among a handful of early Columbia suburbs established over a century ago. Today, the narrow district is bounded on the west by North Main Street, the north by Grace Avenue, the east by Bull Street, and the south by Elmwood Avenue. In its earliest years, this area lay immediately outside the original city limits and contained cotton warehouses. For several decades, beginning in the late 19th century, Cottontown was renamed Bellevue, perhaps in the hope of drawing greater numbers of new residents. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places as the "Bellevue Historic District" in 1997, Cottontown features a remarkable concentration of residences representative of early 20th-century suburbanization. Cost: FREE for Members | $6 for adults | $3 for youth.
