  • Had a great tour. We took advantage when it was the $1 monthly choice. Very informative.
  • Being a Lifelong fan of HISTORICAL Settings, whether its Main Street in Columbia, or touring these Fabulous Homes, and envisioning the simplicity, yet behind the scenes of everyday life, inspired me MANY years ago to join The Historical Society of Columbia. My husband and I own a house in Brevard, NC, and have since 2002. What impressed me most was that they don’t destroy their heritage, the jump through hoops with Building Inspectors to try and preserve as much as possible of the way Brevard “grew up”. Our Historical Society is trying to do the same. There’s so much history in Columbia, that WE ALL need to contribute to preserve our Heritage for future Generations. DBH
  • The mansions are a wonderful place to visit and learn about the history of Columbia. They always have family oriented events and the personal are very cotesious and helpful. Please make the time to visit, you won't regret it.
  • Beautiful historic home. A very enjoyable experience!
  • Steven was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and made the tour enjoyable. The home is beautiful ly restored. Robert Mills was ahead of his time
