Historic Columbia Established 1961 S. Carolina

Established between 1885 and 1950, the University Hill neighborhood features homes with a mix of architectural styles and designs from prominent regional and local architects. As one of the oldest residential communities in Columbia, this neighborhood has continued to be shaped and defined by urban renewal and the University of South Carolina’s eastward expansion. Bounded by Sumter Street, Gervais Street, Laurens Street, and Blossom Street, this portion of South Carolina’s capital city was listed as a Historic District in the National Register of Historic Places in 2004 and it is protected as an architectural neighborhood. The tour will last approximately 75 minutes and begin and end at The Graduate Hotel.
