Horry County Farm Designated as a Century Farm

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Planning & Zoning Department has been notified that the South Carolina Century Farms Program has designated the Waller Farm in Horry County as a Century Farm. The farm was purchased by the family in 1881 and has been continuously owned by the family since then.  Alton D. and Linda Waller of Conway currently own the Waller Farm.  

The Century Farms Program was created to honor families who have owned and farmed the same land for at least one hundred years. The program was created in the 1974 for Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties.  In 1976, the South Carolina Legislature expanded it into a statewide program. Since 1974, over 350 properties have been designated as Century Farms.   

The Pendleton District Commission, in Pendleton SC, administers the Century Farms Program.  This designation places no restrictions on the farm, nor does it offer legal protection and there is no cost to apply.  For more information please contact the Commission at 864-646-3782 or
