Horry County Government Office to Close for Independence Day

Conway, South Carolina – All Horry County offices, other than public safety operations, will be closed on Wednesday, July 4, 2018, in observance of Independence Day.  Regular courts may be in operation in the Horry County Government & Justice Center and all jurors, witnesses, etc. will be required to be present.



Historical Marker to Be Unveiled

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Board of Architectural Review and Historic Preservation (BAR) will be unveiling a George Whitefield historical marker at Little River United Methodist Church Tuesday, June 26, 2018, at 9 a.m.  The event is free and open to the public.

The George Whitefield Marker was originally approved in 1976 with a location along Highway 17 just east of the North Myrtle Beach Flea Market. The marker was damaged and the location did not have easy access for people to pull off the road to read the sign. The BAR voted to replace and move the sign to its new location.

The Little River United Methodist Church is located on the corner of Highway 17 and Mineola Avenue in Little River.

For more information, contact Lou Conklin, Senior Planner with Horry County Planning & Zoning at (843) 915-5340.

A complete listing of all historical markers in South Carolina may be found on the State Historic Preservation Office website.
