RICHLAND COUNTY, SC The renovated Decker Center housing some Richland County offices will open for a preview tour in two weeks.
The $31 million center will house the central Magistrate Court now in downtown Columbia, a substation for deputies and meeting space for community events.
The preview with guided tours starts at 6 p.m. Oct. 26 at the center, 2500 Decker Blvd.
The project has been in the making since county officials purchased the site in 2011.
The Decker Center tour is part of the county’s Richland 101 free, multi-week course that teaches participants the basics of county government. The next session begins in the spring.
