The City of Columbia has always been a hotspot of hospitality and entertainment. Join the Historic Preservation Commission this Thursday evening (August 14) at 7:00 PM to learn more about Columbia’s historic Theaters and Hotels , and how they fit into the historical narrative and urban fabric of Downtown Columbia. The walking tour will focus on events, architecture, people, places, the evolution of building practices, technology, and trends, and so much more!
This event is free and open to the public (and is family-friendly). No registration is required.
Participants will meet at the City Hall Key Sculpture (corner of 8th & Broadway/701 E. Broadway).
Tours will begin promptly at 7:00 PM and will last roughly one hour plus time for questions. Participants are advised to wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
