Editorial | Simeon Chapin’s legacy continues to serve Myrtle Beach area

Simeon Brooks Chapin, the visionary developer who saw the potential of Myrtle Beach long before a municipality was established, set up a foundation in 1943 to help finance a public library, a YMCA, a hospital and church-related charities or projects. Over the years, the Chapin Foundation has distributed about $19 million to many Myrtle Beach area entities.
