Rosewood Shopping Center

Rosewood Shopping Center originally housing the Colonial Stores grocery store, a nursery, a barber, and more!  It was 60,000 square feet of stores and had 280 parking spaces because “the automobile [had] changed the shopping habits of the average housewife.”  This newspaper article from 1954 describes the original shopping center. And can you believe this picture!

Thanks to Debbie Bloom, at Richland County Public Library for finding these articles.
