COLUMBIA, S.C. — Are you looking for fun and creative things for your kids to do during the current shutdown? Of course you are!
News 19 has created a series of coloring sheets that have Columbia landmarks on them. They can be printed off and kids can then color them any way they want!
Here are the landmarks that are featured:
- Blue Sky’s Busted Plug Plaza at 1400 Taylor Street. Supposedly the world’s largest fire hydrant is a partner to Blue Sky’s nearby Tunnelvision mural.
- Olympia’s E.M. Viquesney Doughboy, intersection of Whaley and Wayne streets (Olympia Avenue). The inscription on the plaque below the statue reads: “Dedicated to the memory of our comrades who gave their lives in the World War. Presented by the People of The Pacific Community November 11, 1930”
- Gamecock sculpture in 1000 block of Gervais Street, next to Mellow Mushroom
- The left-side lion sculpture at the South Carolina State Library at 1500 Senate Street. One of a pair of lions at the top of the stairs leading to the front door to the building.
- Bethel African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church at the intersection of Taylor and Sumter streets, the building completed in 1921 is now on the National Register. The congregation (formed in 1866), moved to the former Shandon Baptist Church site on Woodrow Street in 1995.
- Cocky Statue The University of South Carolina unveiled the Cocky statue on campus in the Fall of 2017. The statue, which measures 6'5" and weighs 773-lbs, is located next to Davis College, near the Russell House and Gibbes Green. It was designed and sculpted by Robert Allison, a USC alumnus
- Yesterday's Restaurant After 43 years, Yesterday's restaurant, a Columbia staple, announced it is closing its doors for good. Yesterday's was owned by brothers Scottie and Duncan MacRea and business partner Darrell Barnes. The three men started the restaurant in 1978, at first serving a lunch menu. The front of their restaurant displays an iconic part of the Five Points neighborhood, a man in a full sized bathtub. The building sits at the corner of Devine and Harden Streets.
