After the rise of the boll weevil made cotton crops unstable, flue-cured tobacco became the main cash crop of Horry County. This presentation focuses on the impact of the auction system and the ways in which farmers and buyers attempted to push the prices in their favor. Join us on January 29th at 1 pm to learn more about the impact of flue-cured tobacco with Horry County Museum Technical Assistant Abigail Geedy.
