Experience life on the “one horse farm” in Horry County from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us on September 23rd from 9:00 AM until 11:30 AM to learn about the different animals on the farm and their various roles.
The public is invited to help feed the animals from 9:00-9:30. Visitors can select an ear of corn from the field, shell it, and use it to feed the chickens. Farm staff will talk about the 4 basic animals kept at the farm: mules, a dairy cow, pigs, and chickens and why some animals are named and some aren’t.
Visitors can go to the corn field or corn crib get an ear of corn shell it in the corn sheller and feed to the chickens.
