Malissa Burnette

When Malissa Burnette and her family moved here in the late 1960’s, she remembers taking her four younger sisters to Five Points for a quick movie and bite to eat before walking around the district.

Five Points has always been very pedestrian friendly. When my daughter was younger, we would walk from our house near Dreher High School to Five Points just to walk around. I don’t think you can say that about many districts in Columbia.

Burnette thinks the pedestrian friendly environment encourages people to shop and eat in Five Points.  When she gets the chance to stop, shop, and dine in Five Points, she likes to frequent Revente, Loose Lucy’s, Gourmet Shop, Portfolio Art Gallery, Yesterday’s and Harper’s.

At night, Burnette enjoys the opportunity to drive through Five Points on her way home from work and see all the lights and trees along the streets. She said it adds to the friendliness of the area. When we asked about her favorite memory, she responded with a quick smile and said that in 1989, she got engaged to her husband at Garibaldi’s.
