Booking Dates & Rate


A visit to the University of South Carolina isn't complete without a glimpse of its historic Horseshoe. The 12 buildings that create the U-shaped formation of the original campus have seen more than two centuries of history unfold, earning a position on the National Register of Historic Places.

For decades (and even centuries), the buildings have stood resolutely, bearing witness to the atrocities of war, fire and riots. They've also been proud hosts, welcoming esteemed guests such as President William Howard Taft and Pope John Paul II. Painstakingly preserved, the structures on the Horseshoe tell a colorful tale, not only of the university's history, but of events that shaped South Carolina as a whole.
