Experience life on the 'one horse farm' in Horry County from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Join us to learn about hog haslet and chitterlings. For most families in Horry County, pork was an important source of food. As much of the pig as possible was used for food when on the farm butchering took place. The heart, liver and lungs were cooked together to make a once a year dish called haslet. The small intestines would also be cleaned and stuffed with sausage and hung to be dried or cooked fresh into chitterlings. Join us to learn more about these foods and see how they would have been prepared and cooked on the wood burning stove.
Horry County Museum Director Walter Hill will conduct a blacksmith demonstration at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm on February 3rd from 10 AM until 12 PM. Hill, who has over twenty years of experience blacksmithing, will demonstrate traditional forging techniques for the public.
This presentation will feature various instruments found around the farm (like washboards, spoons and gourds) that could be used to help keep rhythm.
Before there was electricity in the home, clothes were hung on a line to dry and didn't look good unless they were ironed. An iron would easily rust if it was not properly maintained and would ruin light colored clothing. In addition to the regular washing of clothes and linens, join us to see how an iron would have been cleaned, polished and used.
