Homes for the Holidays 2019

The annual Shandon-Hollywood-Rose Hill Homes for the Holidays Tour will take place from 1pm to 5pm on Sunday, December 8.  Tickets are only $20 each and are available in advance from Gibson’s in Five Points, the Piggly Wiggly on Devine Street or visit the tour website for a link to online ticket purchases.  Admission the day of the tour may be purchased at Dreher High School beginning at 1:00.


A holiday fixture for 20 years, this year’s tour features six homes decorated for the holidays, two of which are in HRH, along with Rose Hill Presbyterian Church, celebrating its centennial.  Come explore the architecture and history of each of these beautiful and unique homes while listening to holiday music, and sampling food provided by local restaurants and food stores.


Proceeds from the tour benefit the neighborhoods’ four area schools: A. C. Moore Elementary, Rosewood Elementary, Hand Middle School, and Dreher High School, as well as various neighborhood projects.


Historic Homes Project and Research Workshops

Phase two of the Historic House Plaque project is underway with our full complement of 23 new homes and Rose Hill Presbyterian Church participating. When completed, the neighborhood will have over 100 homes documented and displaying plaques.  

As part of this project and in coordination with the Wales Garden neighborhood, the Richland County Library (and Debbie Bloom) will be conducting three workshops on "researching your home".  The last workshop will be held on Saturday Oct. 26 (3-5pm). You can register on the Sign Up website here. Check the box of the date you want to attend, click SUBMIT and supply the requested information.

These workshops are open to residents of Hollywood-Rose Hill and Wales Garden. Preference will be given to participants in the project should the workshops fill.
