The third Sunday of the month, residents of Richland and Lexington counties are invited to tour of one of Historic Columbia’s house museums for just $1 on Dollar Sunday!
During its years as a private residence, enslaved women made up a significant portion of the sites residents, but left little to no records behind. Their white owners were predominantly women who had few rights of their own, but directed daily operations on the property. Years later the site became home to a women’s college that embraced new found roles and responsibilities for women, and the societal expectations put upon them.
Join us at this special Dollar Sunday to learn more about the complicated lives of women associated with Hampton-Preston Mansion throughout the site’s history. Tours leave at the regular tour hours at 1, 2:30 and 4 p.m. Purchase admission and meet for tours at the Gift Shop at Robert Mills located at 1616 Blanding Street. General admission prices apply to all other properties.
