More About Gathering Tobacco at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm

Experience life on the ‘one horse family farm’ from 1900-1955 at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm! For much of the 20th century, tobacco was the main cash crop for Horry County and the Pee Dee Region. During the late summer, leaves would be gathered and taken to the barn to be strung and cured, this process required participation from all family members, down to young children, whose job would have been to hand the tobacco leaves to a stringer. Join us August 1st, 4th, and 5th as we show how tobacco would have been gathered and strung on the family farm. Demonstrations will take place from 9 AM-11 AM.
The L.W. Paul Living History Farm is located at the corner of Hwy 701 North and Harris Short Cut Road in Conway, SC and is free and open to the public. For more information, call the L.W. Paul Living History Farm at 843-915-5321 or email the Horry County Museum at hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org. For a full list of programs, visit our website at click for details.

More About this Event Poster: L.W. Paul Living History Farm

Visitors to the Farm will have the opportunity to sample the everyday life of an Horry County farm family living during this era. Guests on this working farm will be able to observe activities that would have been commonplace on traditional family farms. Plowing with mules, making lye soap, grinding grits, blacksmithing, curing meat, preserving vegetables, milking cows, and harvesting crops are only a few of the demonstrations at the Farm. Events at the Farm change with the seasons so check in on us throughout the year to see what’s happening here. As the farm year progresses events and demonstrations change to interpret the activities that take place on the Farm annually.
