Located within the 1300 block of Main Street, the Arcade Mall was Columbia's first indoor shopping center. The Equitable Real Estate Company, a group of Columbia businessmen that included Edwin Wales Robertson, a prominent banker and developer, constructed this building in 1912 at a reputed cost of $200,000.00.[1] At the time it was built the Arcade Mall was strategically situated within a very popular section of this main commercial district. The structure’s proximity to the Barringer Building, Columbia’s first skyscraper, undoubtedly ensured its tenants exposure to large numbers of pedestrians conducting business downtown.
