Most of the neighborhood is part of the Seminary Ridge Protection Area Historic District. Inclusion in the historic district signifies the architectural significance of your property and may require special review for some exterior work projects. Homeowners are encouraged to learn more about the designation and requirements by visiting our For Residents page and calling the City of Columbia’s Preservation Office at (803) 545-3222.
