W.’s descendants; Billy Holliday, Betty Holliday McLeod, Judson Holliday, Christy Holliday Douglas, and Russell Holliday, and stands on the historical site of the Galivants Ferry Stump Meetings. 

The Horry County Legacy Business Recognition Program pays tribute to local businesses that have contributed to the economic heritage of Horry County for more than 50 continuous years.
