Before the Myrtle Beach area became a family-friendly beach destination, the local economy was driven by agriculture. Take a trip back to that period in time by visiting the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. This 17-acre farm gives visitors an idea of what it was like to live in the region between 1900 and 1955. Visitors can take part in farm activities such as plowing with mules, making lye soap and milking cows.
