Experience life on the “one horse farm” in Horry County from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us on November 2nd from 9:30 AM until 10:30 AM for Farm Harvest Day to learn participate in the picking, gathering and preparing of seasonal crops at the Farm.
Most farms in Horry County grew a patch of sugar cane that would be ready to harvest in early November. After the cane was harvested, it was taken to the community cane mill and eventually cooked down to make syrup. This provided a sweet addition to food without much cost involved other than the farmer’s labor. At this month’s demonstration, visitors will be able to learn about how sugar cane is harvested and have a chance to chew a piece of fresh cut cane.
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. Paul Living History Farm at 843-365-3596 or email email@example.com. For a full list of programs and events at the Horry County Museum and L.W.
