The 2017 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with Waves of Change: The Story of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The film is free and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, April 5th.
Waves of Change follows almost a century in the history, development, and people of the sleepy beach village that became a national tourist destination. It explores how the community of Myrtle Beach has dealt with two major goals-to bring people to the beach and to build a hometown. It also explores some of the major setbacks to development as well as the forces and people the propelled its growth. And it discusses the next wave of change-continued increase in growth and the challenges that come with that growth.
