Join Horry County Museum’s Technical Assistant Abigail Geedy on July 30th at 1 PM as she discusses the South Carolina Dispensary System and Prohibition in the state. By the early 1890's, many assumed South Carolina was on the verge of declaring prohibition, but in 1892 the dispensary system passed as an alternative. It wouldn’t be until multiple versions of the dispensary system fell out of favor that state prohibition was passed in 1915. The lecture will be held in McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway, SC 29526.
