(hide neighborhood information)

The Historic Waverly neighborhood is important to the architectural history of the city of Columbia. It is located in zip code 29204. The neighborhood lies between the boundaries of Harden Street to the west, North Millwood Avenue to the East, Gervais Street to the south and Taylor Street to the north.

Allen University was founded by the African Methodist Episcopal Church on July 29, 1870 by Bishop John M. Brown. Originally called the Payne Institute, the university was originally named in honor of Daniel A. Payne.

In 1880, it was decided that the institution needed to be more centrally located, so it was moved to Columbia, where the name was changed to Allen University. The name change was intended to honor Bishop Richard Allen, the founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. The Allen University Historic District is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The oldest building on the campus is Arnett Hall, and it was built in 1881 and renovated in 2001. That building is also on the National Historic Registry. Other important buildings on the campus include Chappelle at the corner of Harden and Taylor Streets. It was designed by the famous African American architect John Anderson Langford. It was completed in 1925 and is also a historic landmark. Coppin Hall, the four story women’s dorm at the corner of Hardin and Taylor Streets, and it was built in 1906.

Benedict College, which is located across the street from Allen University, is a private co-educational liberal arts college that was founded in 1870. The baccalaureate program enrolls 3,100 students. The school boasts the second largest undergraduate population of the 20 private colleges in South Carolina.

The school was founded by Rhode Island native, Mrs. Bathsheba Benedict in 1870. At the time when the 80 acre plantation on which the school sits, it was called Benedict Institute. The mission of both Mrs. Benedict and the Baptist Home Mission was to educate freed African American slaves, and to produce citizens who would contribute to society in a beneficial way.

The Historic Waverly area is just a short distance from the Vista, an upscale shopping and dining area along the Congaree River, the downtown area and the University of South Carolina campus.
