Smokehouse Day at the L. W. Paul Living History Farm

Visit the L. W. Paul Living History Farm to celebrate the pig! Winter was the time of year for curing pork on the farm and a season when the family was dependent on home preserved foods during the cold winter months. Staff and volunteers will demonstrate how pork was preserved and prepared on the family farm during the early twentieth century in Horry County. Demonstrations will include smoking and salting meat, making pork sausage, cooking on a wood stove, making lye soap, grinding grits, blacksmithing and other traditional farm activities.

This free event will be held January 20th from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. The L. W. Paul Living History Farm re-creates life on the one horse family farm in Horry County from 1900-1955 and is located at 2279 Harris Short Cut Road in Conway, South Carolina.
