Sep 28, 2019

  • Venue: Horry County Museum
  • Address: 805 Main Street,, Conway, SC 29526
  • Time: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

The Horry County Museum and the AVX Foundation present a program by local author and historian Christopher Boyle on Saturday, September 28th, on his book Mansfield Plantation: A Legacy on the Black River.
“Mansfield Plantation was the ancestral home of the Man-Taylor-Lance-Parker family for over one hundred and fifty years. A hundred years after being sold out of the family’s possession, John and Sallie Middleton Parker have returned the property to the family bloodline. The new owners have gone to extraordinary measures to restore, preserve and share their family treasure. The estate has several concurrently running projects which are designed to preserve Mansfield for future generations to explore, research and appreciate. As history fades, and historical landmarks disappear, Mansfield will remain as she has for nearly three centuries; an approachable yet elegant reminder of South Carolina’s plantation heritage.”
Christopher C. Boyle is a full-time social studies teacher at Socastee High School in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and a part-time teaching associate at Coastal Carolina University in Conway. Upon graduation from Coastal Carolina University with his bachelor’s degree in history, he further studied history at Winthrop University where he graduated in 1996 with his Master of Arts degree in American history. Boyle is the author of Mansfield Plantation: A Legacy on the Black River and The Road to Secession in Antebellum Georgetown & Horry Districts.
The program will begin at 1:00 pm in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway S.C. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.
