As industries changed throughout the years, many areas in South Carolina struggled to adapt and adjust. Luckily for Horry County, its natural resources have always managed to provide a way to help residents evolve with the times. Join us at the Horry County Museum on August 8th as Walter Hill discusses the impact of these features on our county’s history.
The Director of the Horry County Museum, Robert Walter Hill IV received his Bachelor’s degree in History from Coastal Carolina University and a Master’s degree in Museum Studies from Harvard University. In addition to his involvement with a variety of regional and national museum organizations, Hill is also a graduate of the Jekyll Island Museum Management Institute for the Southeastern Museums Conference. In 2010, he was named Alumnus of the Year for the Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts by Coastal Carolina University. Hill continues to live in his hometown of Plantersville, South Carolina with his wife Adrienne and their children Robert and Kate.
