University of South Carolina

Opened in 1934, Williams-Brice Stadium originally sat 17,600 fans, but after a hand full of renovations and upgrades, the latest coming in 1996, "The Cock Pit," as it's also known, now seats 80,250 – not including standing room only areas. Williams-Brice Stadium originally featured a grass playing field up until 1969, when the field was swapped for for AstroTurf. It remained AstroTurf until 1984, when it was changed back to natural grass and remains as such today. 

Woodrow Wilson Family Home

The family home of the 28th President of The United States, Woodrow Wilson, sits as one of Columbia’s most notable historic sites.

The Historic Columbia Foundation has completed the first phase of its restoration of this Italian style villa and is conducting tours of the home in its current state.

The Wilson Family Home is one of only six historic sites in Columbia, South Carolina. The Modjeska Monteith Simkins House, another house in the Upcountry region, has a strong tie to the state’s civil war history as it belonged to what some refer to as the matriarch of civil rights in South Carolina. Each of these sites hold significance to the rich history of both the state and the capital city of Columbia, most notably the Woodrow Wilson Family Home.
