1973 Article about Rosewood Lounge

Columbia sure has come a long way. Check out this article from The State newspaper from 1973 about a bar on Rosewood Drive called the Rosewood Lounge–where Rockaway Athletic Club now stands. The nightclub barred the women from entering, and even threw water on them from the roof.

Thanks to Debbie Bloom at Richland County Public Library for finding these articles for us!
