Grounds Of The Robert Mills House, Columbia — If you’re looking for a truly unique site for your next special event, walk onto the grounds of the Robert Mills House and Park. Here your guests can stroll past a mansion designed by Robert Mills, a historically prominent architect who designed the Washington Monument and other federal structures. Ainsley Hall, a wealthy Columbia merchant, engaged Mills to plan this Columbia townhouse in 1823. It was quite a coup for Hall, as Mills designed few private residences. The house reflects the architect's preference for the Classical Revival style, with a large portico dominating the north facade. Like many of his public buildings, the Mills House is a brick structure with a symmetrical exterior and interior.
