Experience life on the family farm in Horry County from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us on November 23rd from 9:00 AM until 10:30 AM to learn about the different animals on the farm and their various roles. Visitors can help feed the animals from 9-9:30 by shelling corn and using it to feed the chickens.
While mules in other regions usually needed shoes to protect their hooves, the animals who worked the sandy soils of Horry County often did not need them. Typically, the farmer would have trimmed and cleaned his mule’s hooves himself. Join us for this month’s demonstration to see how a mule’s hooves would have been cared for.
The L. W. Paul Living History Farm is open Tuesday-Saturday 9 AM-4 PM and teaches the history of the Horry County farm family. The farm is free and open to the public and is located at the corner of Hwy 701 North and Harris Short Cut Road in Conway, SC. For more information, call the L. W.
