The Historic Columbia Foundation will present Uncovering the Past, part of its series of specialty tours. The tour will focus on archaeological work done at the Mann-Simons Site. The tour will be conducted by Foundation Archaelogical Coordinator Jake Crockett. The tour will be offered monthly on the fourth Wednesday of each month. This month the tour will be offered on April 26 at 11 A.M.
Join Jake as he uncovers the day-to-day history of the Mann and Simons families. Through artifacts recovered at the site, Jake is currently piecing together the material and social world of the family and its business pursuits, including the grocery store and lunch counter they operated. You can visit Jake’s lab, see some of the 60,000 artifacts that have been recovered, and learn about the African-American family who made their lives in Columbia.
While the tour takes place at the Mann-Simons Site, tickets can be purchased at the Museum Shop on the grounds of the Robert Mills House at 1616 Blanding Street in Columbia. For further information, please call 803-252-1770 ex 24 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
