Horry County Museum

ex_native_pottery_560Housed in a converted Post Office adjacent to the Historic District of downtown Conway, the museum features monthly exhibits by local artists in addition to its historical and regional exhibits.

The central theme underlying the exhibits is the wide range of environmental conditions found in Horry County and how its inhabitants, from prehistoric to present, have adapted to these local conditions.

The museum features a variety of materials from old tools and photographs to miniatures of industries such as those producing tar and turpentine. Exhibits include Native American pottery and lifeways, farming tools and implements, household items and clothing, items from an old country store, local crafts – both historical and modern, and wildlife specimens and photographs.
