  • Venue: L. W. Paul Living History Farm
  • Address: 2279 Harris Short Cut Road,, Conway, SC 29526
  • Time: 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM

Experience life on the one horse family farm in Horry County from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us for Sawmill Saturday from 9:30 AM-11:30 AM on September 29th to see the sawmill in operation. There were, and still are, a lot of trees being grown in Horry County for timber production. In the early twentieth century, most communities had a saw mill in the area to get the trees from their forest turned into boards. The farm staff and designated volunteers will operate the saw mill at the farm and Wayne will give discussions on how to get information from the saw blade marks on a board.
The L. W. Paul Living History Farm is open Tuesday-Saturday 9 AM-4 PM and teaches the history of the Horry County farm family from 1900-1955. The farm is free and open to the public and is located at the corner of Hwy 701 North and Harris Shortcut Road in Conway, SC. For more information, contact the L. W.
