In honor of Oktoberfest, students will learn about the history of Germans in Columbia. Germans have made their home in Columbia since its founding days. Students will explore various aspects of German life, including pretzel making and yodeling. We’ll also learn about the contribution Germans made to science and music.
All homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of the month. Each month’s program is from 10 - 11:30 a.m. and includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia. Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels. Homeschool Friday is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10 students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to explore that month's topic. Program participants should gather in the Gift Shop at Robert Mills on the day of the program unless otherwise noted.
The cost is per student, with an accompanying adult free. Homeschool Fridays are $5 for members, $6 for non-members and $8 for both members and non-members at the door.
For more information or to purchase tickets, visit historiccolumbia.org, call (803) 252-1770 x 36, or email jquint@historiccolumbia.org.

Do you get scared easily? At night? In the dark? Surrounded by the forest? Want to find out? Join us at Rose Hill Plantation on Saturday, October 28th, for an evening of ghostly legends with our annual Tales of Union County & Beyond. Feel your spine tingle as you listen to spooky tales by the light of the fire. What was that noise? Maybe it was an owl or a squirrel or a coyote calling. Or maybe it was something else. Let your imagination run wild. Our cast of professional storytellers will keep you hanging on every word.
 
The eeriness begins at 6:30 p.m. behind the kitchen at the rear of the Gist Mansion. Relax around the campfire and enjoy s’mores, hot drinks and other goodies while our storytellers enthrall you. Prepare to be scared!
 
Attendees are asked to bring a lawn chair, a blanket or some other form of portable seating, and to dress for the weather to ensure their comfort. Lighting will be limited and the ground is slightly uneven so decent walking shoes are recommended. We ask that you bring your own mug so that we can reduce Styrofoam waste. We will fill it with a hot drink for you!
 
In the event of inclement weather, the program will not be held.
 
Reservations are required by October 23rd. E-mail or call us so we can take your reservation. Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site, 2677 Sardis Road, Union, SC, 29379 Ph.: 864-427-5966.  E-mail: rosehill@scprt.com   Web: www.southcarolinaparks.com/rosehill
 
Cost is $10.00 per person (age 6 and older). Age 5 and under are free. This is a S.C. Park Passport Plus program.
