Historic Columbia’s Palladium Society continues its Renovation Rodeo tour series on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6 p.m. with a tour of a home in Melrose Heights.
Presented by Modern Exterminating, the Renovation Rodeo series takes us on a tour of old homes and buildings in the Columbia area that have been refurbished and renovated while staying true to the roots and history of the site.
The tours give the homeowners, architects and contractors involved in the projects an opportunity to discuss their work and inspiration. Through these renovations, individuals are helping to preserve the historic character of the capital city.
“The Palladium Society is excited to offer tours of recent renovations in Columbia’s downtown neighborhoods,” said Megan Plott, president of the Palladium Society. “A lot of time, effort and love went into these renovations, and we are excited to show people the process and amazing results.”
The Palladium Society is a dynamic group of young professionals who support the mission of Historic Columbia through education, social and fundraising initiatives. Members have the opportunity to network with other likeminded young professionals, volunteer at exciting Palladium events, hold leadership positions and attend social events such as happy hours, pub-crawls and more.
This tour is free for Palladium Society members and $5 for non-members and includes light hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine. Advance registration is required – address and location details will be sent to registrants before the event. Reserve your spot at historiccolumbia.org, or by calling 803.252.7742 ext. 15 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
