While Hootie and the Blowfish may be one of the best-known bands to come out of Columbia, what other musicians can you name that call it home? Together we will learn about the various kinds of music performed by Columbians, including gospel, jazz, country, soul, and rock and roll.  Students will explore these genres and create their own instruments. We’ll also learn about famous dances and dance clubs from our very own hometown.
 
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. If you have questions, would like to be on our mailing list, or if you would like to register for the entire year of Homeschool Friday programs, please email education@historiccolumbia.org or call 803.252.1770 x 26.

Join Historic Columbia for a guided walking tour of the Old Shandon neighborhood presented by Seed Architecture. With lots laid out in 1893, Old Shandon is accepted as Columbia’s first planned suburb. Named for Reverend Peter J. Shand, a former rector of Trinity Episcopal Church, Shandon was incorporated as its own town in 1904 and annexed in 1913. An extension of Columbia’s streetcar line into the suburb prompted growth to the south and east over the next few decades. Today’s “Old Shandon” neighborhood includes the blocks bounded by Maple, Devine, and Heidt streets, Millwood Avenue, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Park.
Second Sunday Strolls provide a guided tour for many of the neighborhoods featured in Historic Columbia's Retrace: Connecting Communities Through History brochures. Tours are 30 - 60 minutes in length. Tickets are free for HC members, $8 for adult non-members, and $5 for youth non-members. For more information, visit historiccolumbia.org, email reservations@historiccolumbia.org, or call 803.252.1770 x 23.
