Event Description

This 60-minute guided tour features the Founder’s Garden, herb gardens, and My Mother’s Garden at the Robert Mills Property. Visitors will learn about the various plants, herbs, and trees that adorn the Robert Mills House grounds. Depending on the season, visitors may learn about vegetables planted at 19th century homes, heirloom flowers and old garden roses. The Founder’s Garden is designed to mimic 1820’s-inspired English gardens. One of the big leaf magnolias on the property was transplanted from Alwehav Plantation, home to Sarah Hall’s half-sister.
Walk-ins welcome! For more information, call 803.252.1770 ext 24, or email reservations@historiccolumbia.org.
