Waverly Protection Area

WAVERLY PROTECTION AREA

PDS PP IMG DP Waverly ImageWaverly was originally an early subdivision of an antebellum plantation by the same name located on the outskirts of Columbia, with the earliest homes constructed by the 1870s and 1880s. By the early twentieth century, it had evolved into a community of African-American artisans, professionals and social reformers, many of whom made significant contributions to the social and political advancement of blacks in Columbia and South Carolina. It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1989 and was designated a local Protection Area in 2005.  Revisions to the Waverly Protection Area Guidelines were adopted by Council December 6, 2016 after a series of community meetings.
