Experience life on the family farm in Horry County from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us on January 4th from 9:30 AM until 10:30 AM for Farm Harvest Day to participate in the picking, gathering, and preparing of crops on the farm. This month’s demonstration will focus on the importance of firewood.
Cutting firewood was as much a part of harvesting on farms as picking or gathering field crops and would normally take place in the winter months when the work load was typically lighter. Visitors can try their hand at using the tools for this task and learn about the different types of wood that were most desirable to use.
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 843-915-5321 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For a full list of programs and events at the Horry County Museum and L.W.
