The annual Tobacco Heritage Day is held at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm. Horry County Museum's 17-acre L.W. Paul Living History Farm depicts farm life in the county from 1900 to 1955. The working farm gives visitors a chance to see plowing mules, soap making, curing meat, blacksmithing and harvesting crops. The farm is located outside of Conway at the corner of S.C. 701 and Harris Short Cut Road. The next event at the farm is Fall Harvest and Syrup Day on Nov. 14. All farm events are free.
