    Research Roundtable | Modjeska Monteith Simkins

    Modjeska Monteith Simkins was born in Columbia, S.C. on December 5, 1899, into a society that legally dispossessed women and people of color of their civil liberties. Over the course of her 92 years, she displayed a courage and perseverance that many argue was unmatched. Join Katharine Allen, Director of Research at Historic Columbia, to learn about the ongoing interpretive improvements at her former home, which will reopen to the public later this year. Participants are welcome to bring their lunch to this program.

    President's Day Tours | Woodrow Wilson Family Home

    Join Historic Columbia on Monday, Feb. 17 for tours of the Woodrow Wilson Family Home: A Museum of Reconstruction to see how his time in Columbia may have influenced his decisions as President. Normally closed to the public on Mondays, there is no better way to mark President’s Day than by taking a tour of the only Presidential site in South Carolina. The Woodrow Wilson Family Home is also the nation's only museum dedicated to interpreting the post-Civil War Reconstruction period. During the height of Reconstruction, Woodrow Wilson's parents built this house, the only one they would ever own. Although the home has changed hands many times since the teenaged future president lived here, it stands as a reminder of how our city struggled to rebuild itself in the post-war era.

    Homeschool Friday: Columbia in Wartimes

    What was life like in Columbia during the numerous wars that our country fought? Students will examine what occurred on the Homefront from the Revolutionary War through Vietnam. We will learn about what Columbians did to help and to protest, as well the various war efforts throughout our long history. 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 contact us by email or call 803.252.1770 x 26.
