Historic Columbia will hold its monthly Homeschool Friday on November 1. This month’s activity is a tour of Five Points. Join HC to explore one of the earliest planned suburbs of Columbia where the introduction of street car lines provided the catalyst for its explosive growth. Listen to a local resident share his experiences living in the area from Valley Park to the reoccurring floods of Rocky Branch Creek. Can you find the site of Columbia's first supermarket grocery store, which opened in 1949?
All homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia's Homeschool Friday programs. Each month's program includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites. Homeschool Fridays programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels.
Reservations are suggested and can be made by calling James Quint, HC’s Education Coordinator at 252-1770 ex 36 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost of the class is $5 per student. The class will meet at the Five Points fountain at 10 a.m. on Friday, November 1.
