Wells Woods – Columbia’s Ghost Town

Educational Walk Nature Walk

Sun. Jun 5

10:00 am


12:00 pm

2.5 miles


This forested part of Columbia was for one hundred years a thriving community but now all that remains are numerous ruins. We will visit the sites of the school, farmhouses and mills and learn who the people were who settled here and why they all left, all the while enjoying the natural features of the area as well.
