New Exhibit

We have put up a new exhibit in the Local History Room called: Hail To The Chief: Columbia's presidential Visits 1791-1938.

The exhibit takes a look at visits from Washington, Teddy Roosevelt, McKinley, Taft, Wilson and FDR to Columbia. Images were scanned from The State and from our Bicentennial Photograph Collection.

Did you know that the difference between a display and an exhibit is that an exhibit teaches you something? I just learned that at one of our South Carolina Archival Association conferences. The next conference is October 8th in case you want to mark your calendars.
