Celebrate Five Points' Centennial with a Happy Hour History Tour

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Enjoy a Capital City cocktail with a twist as Historic Columbia's Happy Hour History Tour series returns to Five Points every Friday from April 17 to May 8.

As Five Points celebrates its centennial this year, meet at the Five Points Fountain at the corner of Greene and Harden Streets for a guided tour to explore the history and architecture of this shopping and commercial district. Tours cost $20 for Historic Columbia members and $25 for the general public. Admission includes cocktails and appetizers along the way, and participants must be 21 or older to enjoy adult beverages. Reservations aren’t required but are encouraged as these tours tend to sell out, and walk-up registrations will only be accepted if space permits.

What began as a trolley hub for Columbia's first planned suburban neighborhood has evolved into one of the city’s entertainment hot spots. This guided tour highlights the history and architecture of this historic district and how they played a role in transforming this area into the “famously hot” spot it is today.

For more information or to reserve a spot on a tour, please call 803.252.1770 ext. 23, email, or visit

About Historic Columbia:
In November 1961, a small group of individuals intent on saving the Ainsley Hall House from demolition officially incorporated as the Historic Columbia Foundation. Over the next five decades the organization, which was founded on the premise of preservation and education, would take on the stewardship of seven historic properties in Richland County. Today, the organization serves as a model for local preservation efforts and interpretation of local history. or find us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or YouTube for more details.
