Horry County Museum Lecture Series: Agrarian Folklore & Folk Remedies

Sep 18, 2021

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

Rural farming communities have long been places with people who lived and worked closely with the land for their daily survival. Folklore springs from this in ways such as knowing if the ‘signs’ are right for certain crops or other farm activities, a concept that drives much of the information in the widely used Farmer’s Almanac to this day. Agrarian communities were also often distant from doctors, or couldn’t afford to see one regularly. This encouraged folk remedies using mostly ingredients you could find on the average farm, as well as community Faith Healers. Join us on September 18th at 1 PM at the Horry County Museum in Conway, SC.
