It's not only entertaining but it's also educational! A fun and enjoyable trip for the entire family!
Start by visiting The Horry County Museum (on Main Street at the corner of 9th Ave), then take a short drive North to the L.W. Paul Living History Farm, then after that, have lunch at one of our fine and unique family restaurants close by!
Did we mention it's free to get into the museum and the living history farm! Well, now you know! However, just a friendly suggestion, if you had a great time on your visit, locate their donation box(es) and maybe drop a few dollars in. Please however dont feel obligated or that they are waiting for you to do so.. we all want you to have a fantastic time learning more about Conway and Horry County! Please do however note that both the museum and the farm are not open on Sundays or Mondays or holidays.

Visitors to the Farm will have the opportunity to sample the everyday life of an Horry County farm family living during this era. Guests on this working farm will be able to observe activities that would have been commonplace on traditional family farms. Plowing with mules, making lye soap, grinding grits, blacksmithing, curing meat, preserving vegetables, milking cows, and harvesting crops are only a few of the demonstrations to see at the Farm.
