Horry County Museum Lecture Series: Agrarian Folklore & Folk Remedies

More About Horry County Museum Lecture Series: Agrarian Folklore & Folk Remedies

Rural farming communities have long been places with people who lived and worked closely with the land for their daily survival. Folklore springs from this in ways such as knowing if the ‘signs’ are right for certain crops or other farm activities, a concept that drives much of the information in the widely used Farmer’s Almanac to this day. Agrarian communities were also often distant from doctors, or couldn’t afford to see one regularly. This encouraged folk remedies using mostly ingredients you could find on the average farm, as well as community Faith Healers. Join us on September 18th at 1 pm to learn more about local agrarian folklore and folk remedies with Horry County Museum Technical Assistant Abigail Geedy.
Abigail Geedy was born and raised in south-central Pennsylvania and moved to South Carolina for college in 2012. She has both an Anthropology Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree and a Graduate Certificate of Museum Management from the University of South Carolina. She began volunteering in museums in 2011 and had worked in curation at the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology for the last 5 years. In 2020, she joined the Horry County Museum as a Technical Assistant.
The program will be held in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at Click for Details.
