"Join Columbia Archives on Thursday, July 17 at 7 pm for an interesting evening of stories centered around the leisure life of Columbia founder Jim Rouse. Special guests include Rouse family members and friends. The program augments the latest exhibit in the series of events that honor the life and legacy of Jim Rouse on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth.
The exhibit features photographs, documents and artifacts from the collection that introduce the more personal side of Jim Rouse. Mined primarily from the materials received most recently from Rouse’s home , the exhibit features family photos of vacations and relaxing days at home; fishing gear that stood ready at the back door of his Wilde Lake home, and books and recipes that speak to Rouse’s passion for food.
Columbia Archives is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. The exhibit, which opened July 7, will run through September. Columbia Archives is located at 10227 Wincopin Circle in Town Center."
