Event Description

Join HCF for a guided walking tour of the Hollywood-Rose Hill neighborhood at 2 pm on Sunday, June 9. The Hollywood-Rose Hill neighborhood is bordered by Heyward and Harden Streets, Rosewood Drive, and the University of South Carolina's athletic fields, located off South Marion Streets. Designed to be separate communities, Rose Hill and Hollywood were established in 1914 and 1921. Characterized by a common architectural form - the bungalow - many of Rose Hill's houses were constructed from Aladdin Company kits. Meanwhile, Hollywood generally featured a variety of larger, architect-designed residences. Rose Hill and Hollywood were annexed with other southeast Columbia suburbs in 1926 and 1927. Despite their physical differences, these two neighborhoods today often are perceived as a single community. Second Sunday Strolls provide a guided tour for many of the neighborhoods featured in Historic Columbia Foundation's Retrace (Connecting Communities Through History) brochures. Tours are 30 - 60 minutes in length. Cost: Free for HCF members | $6 adults | $3 youth. Reservations requested. Walk ups welcome if space permits. To RSVP please call 803.252.1770, ext. 24 or email reservations@historiccolumbia.org.
