    Take a step back in time during a guided tour of one of Historic Columbia Foundation's three historic house museums:

    Hampton-Preston Mansion & Gardens: This restored urban estate chronicles the early years of our new nation through the Civil War as experienced by two of Columbia's planter-class families. Set with family furnishings and artifacts, the mansion depicts the years 1818-1868.

    Mann-Simons Site: Although only one house stands today, the Mann-Simons site historically was a collection of commercial and domestic spaces owned and operated by the same African-American family from at least 1843 until 1970. The property and its multiple buildings changed considerably over time to better accommodate the needs, tastes, and aspirations of this remarkable family.

    Robert Mills House & Gardens: Robert Mills, South Carolina's most famous architect, designed this mansion, as well as the Washington Monument and other federal structures in Washington D.C. Built in 1823, this National Historic Landmark seves as a decorative arts and local history museum.

    Woodrow Wilson Family Home:The Woodrow Wilson Family Home features professionally designed exhibit galleries, period vignettes, virtual tours and wayside signage that grants visitors an interpretive experience never before encountered at this venerable landmark. Benefiting from countless hours of research on the part of contemporary scholars and staff, Historic Columbia will delve into the Reconstruction era in the only home owned by the parents of the man who became the 28th president of the United States and the world’s first modern international statesman.
