The guided walking tour will highlight the architecture and history of this historic neighborhood. Named after the nation's first federal architect who designed the circa-1823 Robert Mills House and the circa-1828 Asylum, today's Robert Mills District was listed in 1971 within the National Register of Historic Places as "Columbia Historic District II." This district contains approximately 113 historic structures embodying more than three centuries of diverse residential and institutional architecture. The tour will meet at the Mann-Simons Site at 1403 Richland St. and depart at 2 p.m.

Second Sunday Strolls and Rolls provide a guided walking or bus tour for many of the neighborhoods featured in Historic Columbia's Retrace: Connecting Communities Through History brochures. Each tour highlights part of Columbia's history through its historic neighborhoods and districts.

This tour is free for HC members, $8 for adults and $5 for youth. Walk-ins are welcome; to reserve tickets, call 803.252.1770 x 23 or email reservations@historiccolumbia.org.
