OLD SHANDON/LOWER WAVERLY PROTECTION AREA
The Old Shandon/Lower Waverly Neighborhood also developed as an early suburb of Columbia, and was considered by some to be the city's first real suburb when it was created in the 1890s. Development was slow at first, but spurred by the city's new electric streetcar lines, construction increased considerably in the early 1900s. The neighborhood contains a variety of architectural styles. Old Shandon Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2003 and was designated a local Protection Area in 2001.
