The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with an installment of the South Carolina Hall of Fame Film Series produced by SCETV, featuring inductees from the Modern Era.
Established in 1973, The South Carolina Hall of Fame, located in Myrtle Beach, inducts one deceased and one contemporary honoree each year. It is by law the “official” Hall of Fame for South Carolina. There are nearly 100 members of the South Carolina Hall of Fame, each of whom has made outstanding contributions to South Carolina’s heritage, history, and progress.
Biographies of late 20th century inductees include Hugh McColl, Bobby Richardson, Cale Yarborough, Marian Wright Edelman, Joe Riley, Walter Edgar, Pat Conroy and Darla Moore.
The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, September 22nd, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.
The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2021. For a full list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Join us on September 25th as Horry County Museum Curator Hillary Winburn explores Horry County’s history and stories through the Museum’s photographic collection.
Hillary Winburn graduated from The College of Charleston in 2005. Before becoming Curator for the Horry County Museum and the L.W. Paul Living History Farm, Ms. Winburn volunteered with The Friends of the Hunley and worked with the Historic Charleston Foundation and the Horry County Library.

The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the SCETV film Miss Springmaid.
This film, part of the Carolina Stories Series by SCETV, tells the story of World War I hero and legendary advertising savant Elliott White Springs, who also founded Springmaid Beach in Myrtle Beach, SC as a resort for his employees. The 30-minute program takes an unflinching look at the irrepressible and provocative advertising slant that made “Springmaid” sheets a household name and changed the approach of the entire country’s advertising industry.
