Explore the native and exotic with Historic Columbia’s Director of Grounds, Keith Mearns, as he offers insight into the varied and beautiful gardens at the Robert Mills House and Hampton-Preston Site. Each encompassing a full city block, the development of the gardens at these sites is guided by collections policies formulated to maximize their interpretive value. Historic Columbia is a valuable historical asset in Lake Murray Country, offering visitors a look at the past in this busy modern world.

Subjects discussed will include botany, horticulture, landscape design and historic precedent.

Tours are offered each Friday and begin in front of the Gift Shop at the Robert Mills House.
