L. W. Paul Living History Farm

Near Conway, SC there is a special place where you can experience life on a farm during the first half of the last century, 1901 – 1955. Mr. L. W. Paul, an Horry County businessman, offered to gift the county the funding to establish a living history museum with the purpose of educating the community about this special yet commonplace way of life.

Interesting exhibits help young and adult visitors get a feel for how they’d live if they were catapulted back to this era. Here are some of the topics that come alive at the L. W. Paul Living History Farm:

Cane syrup from sugar cane was a treat for hard-working farm families.
