‘Stories in Stone’ in Conway
The Horry County Historical Society will walk back in time in downtown Conway by sharing its annual “Stories in Stone” tours on Saturday.
Hourlong tours begin at 10 and 11 a.m., noon, and 1 and 2 p.m. from Kingston Presbyterian Church and its Old Village Burial Ground, 800 Third Ave. Both of these places, built in 1858 and about 1750, respectively, are on the National Register of Historic Places. Tour guides in period costumes will share historically documented stories about local founding members of Horry County, some of whom were part of the historical Sons of the Confederacy. Other stops will include a visit in the church sanctuary, the CP Quattlebaum Office, and refreshments in Ultimate Gullah Store, served by the Peter Horry Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Tickets are $20. Details at 248-9045 or www.hchsonline.org.
