Event Description

$5 HCF members | $10 nonmembers
Join John Sherrer, Historic Columbia Foundation’s Director of Cultural Resources, as he explores the ceramics interests of 19th-century Columbians. Starting with a guided tour of our current exhibit, From Landrum to Leeds: Common Ceramics in 19th-Century Columbia, participants will then travel to Forest Acres to see the former location of the Landrum pottery. Next stop will be Main Street, where locals purchased a variety of domestically produced and imported wares for their homes and businesses during the 1800s. Second Sunday Strolls and Rolls provide a guided walking or bus tour for many of the neighborhoods featured in Historic Columbia Foundation's Retrace: Connecting Communities Through History brochures. Each tour highlights part of Columbia’s history through its historic neighborhoods and districts. This month's bus tour is 90 – 120 minutes in length.
Reservations requested. Walk-ups welcome if space permits. To RSVP please call 803.252.1770, ext. 24 or email reservations@historiccolumbia.org.
