This mall is named in honor of
Richard Richardson 1704 - 1780
Brigadier General of militia in the American
Revolution, Member of the First and Second
Provincial Congresses, Commander of the
1775 Snow Campaign, and ancestor of six
Governors of South Carolina. He was taken
prisoner by the British in 1780 and became
mortally ill while in captivity. Main Street
in Columbia was first named Richardson
Street. When this portion of Main Street
was closed to create a mall, the General
Assembly voted to restore its original name.
