untilJoin 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.
