Horry County Museum Lecture Series: That Happened Here?

Join us on September 26th as Marian Calder shares some interesting moments in Horry County’s history including Confederate deserters raiding local farms, the largest wooden ship built in SC, an abandoned community on the Waccamaw River, and a suspected murderer calling down the wrath of God on his accusers.
