Myrtle Beach is a city in the state of South Carolina. It is located in Horry County and is
part of the Grand Strand of beaches. The Grand Strand, also known as Long Bay, is an
essentially uninterrupted 60 mile stretch of beach from

Calabash, North Carolina to
Georgetown, South Carolina. The primary city along this stretch of beachfront is Myrtle
Beach.


Before the Europeans started arriving, Long Bay was inhabited by the Waccamaw
Indians. These Indians settled mainly around the Litt
le River area just slightly northeast
of what is now Myrtle Beach. The river was used for travel and fishing.


Settlers first arrived in the Long Bay area in the 17th century. These new arrivals tried to
extend the plantation system towards the ocean. The
soil in the area was too sandy and
produced poor crops so this was abandoned and the area returned to its uninhabited
state.


Just around the time of the American Revolution, land grants were given to several
families. The most notable of these was the Wit
hers family and their granted land was
called the Withers Swash. The Withers remained as one of the few settlers for the next
50 years until a strong hurricane took the house of R.F Withers into the ocean drowning
18 members of the family simultaneously. A
s a result, the Withers family abandoned
their plot. The land was now uninhabited again and returned to its natural forested
state.


After the Civil War, this abandoned land was purchased by the Conway Lumber
Company. The company built the Conway & Seashor
e railroad to move cut timber
inland. At the end of the railroad, a “Withers” post office was established. This was the
area of the old Swash settled by the Withers years before.



This was called “New Town” and employees would take a rain flatcar to the b
each on
their weekends off.


The Seaside Inn was built in 1900 for visitors to the railroad. A contest was held to
rename New Town. A resident, F.G. Burroughs suggested honoring a local shrub and the
name “Myrtle Beach” was born.


Myrtle Beach continued to

grow for the next couple of decades. In 1938, the city
incorporated and in 1940, Myrtle Beach Municipal Airport was built and the King’s
Highway was paved which gave the city its first primary roadway.


Presently, Myrtle Beach is a huge tourist attraction

bringing over 13 million visitors a
year to the pristine beaches. This tourism drives the local economy directly, but golf is
another major attraction in Myrtle Beach. A staggering 4.2 million rounds of golf are
played annually here.
