Horry County Museum Lecture Series: Peter Horry

September 9, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

The Horry County Museum presents a lecture by Marian Calder on Saturday, September 9th on Peter Horry. Many of us have heard of Francis Marion thanks to the romanticized stories by Parson Weems. But what about the man who served with him and for whom Horry County is named? Join us to learn more about Peter Horry, his role in the Revolutionary War, and beyond.

Marian Calder is the Assistant Director for the Horry County Museum. She received her Bachelor’s degree in History from Coker College in 2007. In 2011, she began working full time with the Horry County Museum and L.W. Paul Living History Farm. In addition to her membership in various museum organizations, Calder currently serves on committees for the Palmetto Archives, Libraries, and Museums Council on Preservation, the Waccamaw Market Cooperative Board and the South Carolina Federation of Museums.

The lecture will be held in the Museum’s McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway, SC 29526. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcg.museum@horrycountysc.gov. For more information about programs for 2023, visit the museum website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.
