Which downtown house of worship has a streetscape feel between its sanctuary and its education building? Complete with replica gas lamps? And a ghost sign on the south side of its most recently acquired ancillary structure? Join the Historic Preservation Commission on our next Twilight Walk Through Downtown to find out.
The tour will be this Thursday evening (September 18) at 7:00 PM. Participants will learn more about Columbia’s historic Places of Worship, and how they fit into the historical narrative and urban fabric of Downtown Columbia. This tour will be led by a special guest, an architect well-versed in ecclesiastical architecture. 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.
For special accommodations, or for more information, please contact City Planner Rachel Bacon at 573.874.7239.
