Historic Newberry Walking Tour

Old mileage marker

Newberry South Carolina has a rich and interesting past and well-preserved historic buildings and sites in its downtown. A walking tour is the perfect way to appreciate its significance and the City of Newberry offers a Historic Downtown Newberry Map Tour on their website.

24 of the 34 sites on the map are easily within walking distance of each other. 10 are a bit further away, on the outskirts of town. Among the downtown sites, you’ll discover a 19th century opera house, a 1920’s filling station, war memorials, old courthouse, historic churches, original schools, and the newly opened Newberry Museum – housed in the 1911 post office (later a public library). The museum tells the story of not only Newberry from its founding, but also extensive Newberry College history and the history of communities elsewhere in Newberry County.

Live Jazz in Columbia: Chayz Lounge

This intimate setting for live jazz is located on Meeting Street in West Columbia. Here you are able to relax and unwind with a glass of wine or cocktail and experience the soothing sounds of jazz, R&B and soul LIVE. A lineup of accomplished musicians makes up the show schedule. These jazz, R&B and soul artists are of regional, national or international renown. In addition to great music, Chayz Lounge also offers light meals (from cheeseburger sliders to Maryland Crab Cakes) and desserts that you can enjoy before the show. Due to Covid-19, the club is only seating 37 guests per show (half of their 75-seat capacity) making the experience only more intimate for the patrons.
