Columbia's Richland Mall


A rendering of the original RICHLAND MALL. The open-air complex, which was the Palmetto State's first shopping mall, was designed by Atlanta's Toombs, Amisano & Wells firm. They envisaged Atlanta's LENOX SQUARE (1959), Chattanooga's EASTGATE CENTER (1962), Jacksonville's REGENCY SQUARE (1967) and Greenville's McALISTER SQUARE (1968).
