This place was recreated to show what life was like in the area in the early 1/2 of the 1900's. Visitors can participate in harvesting, milking a cow, grinding corn, etc. according to what time of year it is. There are many different buildings that would be present on a working farm along with farm animals including turkeys, chickens, pigs, cow, horse, etc. There is a saw mill, blacksmith, smoke house, out house, tobacco barn, hand dug canoes, tools from the era, barn, chicken coop, barn, chapel, etc. The visitor center has produce produced from the farm as well as hand made toys, etc. The house has a woman who cooks with a wood stove and explains life from that time period. The people who work there also wear period costumes. Greatly enjoyed our visit. There is plenty of free parking.

If your in Conway SC or in MB and you want to visit some history take a ride to Conway SC about 20 mi from MB to 2279 Harris Shortcut Rd (Ln) and Hwy 701 N in Conway, its free and very interesting for adults and children a like. They have a web sight www.horrycountymuseum.org also a phone number 843-365-3596. You can spend a few hour there out in the country learning a lot about farming back when. Today they were making soap, cutting up a pig and showing how they smoke meat (Today was Old Smokehouse Day) The kids will love it out in the country and like I said its free, you can leave a small donation if you wish but there no one collecting. They have a little general store you can buy a few things if you wish. It ran by mostly volunteer who will explain things to you , very pleasant country people, enjoy well worth the time and travel. One thing there is some walking and possibly a little rough for a wheel chair unless some pushing, a stroller shouldn't be to bad and there is a little walking involved also a few stair but not to bad.

Managed by the Horry County Museum, this place started with the donation of a large collection of vintage farm implements and a good-sized piece of land on the edge of town. Besides the visitor center, where you can buy syrup pressed and cooked down from sugar cane grown on the property, pick up a book on local history or catch a lecture, there are numerous re-created buildings. There is a farmhouse, barn with animal pens, blacksmith shop, tobacco barn and numerous other "period-correct" offerings. Volunteers and museum employees offer all sorts of demonstrations, varying by the time of year. A great resource for the local schools and a good way to add another dimension to the typical family beach vacation at the popular nearby resort of Myrtle Beach.

A living history farm that features life on a southern farm from the early 1900's to the 1950's. You are able to walk the cotton fields, see crops growing, learn how potatoes are stored for the winter above ground, see eggs being gathered from the chicken coop, walk in the barns and meet the farm mule. Products harvested and products made from harvested products are for sale in the store. See the housewife's kitchen and watch her making the noonday meal. You can even pump water from the hand pump just outside the kitchen door. Great experience especially for the children. The attraction is free, but feel free to make a donation. Ground uneven, but limited wheelcchair access available.

We went on a slow day when no activities were planned at the farm It was SO nice! Our 4 year old granddaughter really enjoyed it. She was disappointed not to see pigs but the new ones weren't there yet. Loved the mules and the cow. Nice gift shop but they were unable to take credit cards so we were limited to cash on hand for purchases.

My husband and I visited the Living Farm from very busy Myrtle Beach where we were staying. We just loved the serene setting and history that went along with it. We both felt this was more our style rather than the touristy area near our hotel. The Farm was very education for us since we live in New England and hadn't seen a working southern Farm. The lady in the gift shop was very friendly and we talked with her for quite a while about the recent hurricane Mathew and all the damage it did to the surrounding area. We highly recommend visiting this outside museum and we are glad we got a chance to see it. Oh, loved the Farm animals too!

This is a working farm dated around 1950. They have events scheduled throughout the year such as Tobacco Days and Syrup Days. A nice family place that covers a good deal of local history
