Sunday Jan 19

Dollar Sunday | Hampton-Preston Mansion & Gardens

Sunday, January 19, 2020 1:00 pm

1615 Blanding Street

The third Sunday of the month, residents of Richland and Lexington counties
are invited to tour of one of Historic Columbia’s house museums for just $1
on Dollar Sunday!

During its years as a private residence, enslaved women made up a significant
portion of the sites residents, but left little to no records behind. Their
white owners were predominantly women who had few rights of their own, but
directed daily operations on the property. Years later the site became home
to a women’s college that embraced new found roles and responsibilities for
women, and the societal expectations put upon them.

Join us at this special Dollar Sunday to learn more about the complicated
lives of women associated with Hampton-Preston Mansion throughout the
site’s history. Tours leave at the regular tour hours at 1, 2:30 and 4 p.m.
General admission prices apply to all other properties.
